September 11, 2001
began like the many days before,
But before long the world would know
what this day had in store.
A hijacked plane flown into one of the twin towers,
ending its deadly flight.
A mere 18 minutes later another plane hit,
This the beginning of America's plight.
The once vital components of a business day,
Such as documents and desks,
Now trivial objects as hopeless employees
Leaped tragically to their deaths.
The Pentagon, once a national symbol of
Our country's safety and strength,
Was also attacked and bears a wound,
Smoldering hundreds of feet in length.
The entire world watched in horror,
As tower one crumbled to the ground.
No true New Yorker will ever forget
The unbelievable sight and sound.
A short while later the other one caved,
Crashing down floor by floor,
And before our eyes reality set in:
The World Trade Center was no more.
Fireman and cops rushed to the scene,
Helping in any way they could.
Many of them risking, sacrificing their lives,
As any of our finest would.
Civilians ran in fear for their lives
Beneath a shower of debris and ash.
These many lives now affected as one,
Because of a cowardly crash.
Our government stated whatever it takes,
The perpetrators will be found,
Every American working together,
Until the animals are hunted down.
The violated people of a nation whose creed
Has been "the land of the free,"
Now seek comfort in our President's quotation
Of God's word, Psalm twenty-three.
We do not know what more terrors will come
Or how this nightmare will end.
All we know is that our freedom was challenged
And the time has come to protect and defend
Through the destruction the people will unite,
For an attack on one is an attack on all.
We will join together and win this fight,
United we stand, divided we fall.
As children of God and citizens of America
We must come together and pray,
Not just for justice or for revenge
But that God will be glorified through this day.
For we know that our battle is not against flesh and blood,
As the world would have us believe,
And we know that the day will come
when God's judgment is received.
The whole world cried out ' why?'
As we watched those planes leave the sky,
And cause so many innocent victims to die.
We stopped and stared, our eyes were glazed,
The nation was shocked, more so amazed,
But we were powerless as we all gazed.
The skyline was beautiful, powerful and tall,
We were speechless as we watched it fall,
Our hearts go out to one and all.
Revenge is wrong, but someone must pay,
Killing more, won't take the pain away,
But uniting together is the only way.
We won't let this happen any more,
Or it will lead to all out war,
You mark my words for sure.
So let the terrorists think that they've won,
While they laugh and cheer at what they've done,
Because this world WILL unite as one.
We'll give them a slap in the face,
As the buildings get put back into place,
And prove WE are the true HUMAN race.
Blood is the fluid of life spilled for countries for what we call freedom and fighting for our country and land. They say that America is the land of freedom to do as you please, but what they really mean is to pay taxes out the ass and be shut up forever. In America they say you are free and have no worries, but really it is all a lie to make you feel safe. It's nothing. Just a world of endless dreams and hopes gone to hell that you'll never be free. If we were considered free this nation would not be despising upon race and wealth. What should it matter what color you are or even how much money you have. The American Government says that there is opportunity here, but what opportunity is that? The opportunity to fail before you even try to succeed. There are no jobs to support our families, because foreign people come into this country and take them from us. When we have lived here all our lives and they just emmigrate and steal them all blind. How are we supposed to believe that our government is on our side when our government doesn't even do anything to help citizen born Americans first before helping those who do not belong here. We as Americans stand up and fight for our country and never get anything in return. We put our lives and the lives of our children on the line just to save the sanity from our enemies outside, but what we are really doing is killing ourselves and the freedom of dreams we were promised to begin with. Some people say that we should stand up against the government and fight for what is rightfully ours, but how can you do that when the government just throws you in prison for life. It just goes to show, that unless you have wealth then America don't give a shit if you lose your house, your children starve and have no clothes or education, or you don't have a job to pay bills with. The American Government is only concerned with their little social circle and not with the rest of the American life and way of living. So I say to you, how can we be free when all our American dreams lay dormant for an eternity because we are already shut up like a prison never to have any kind of say or freedoms of life.
