Words unspoken, Words unread!

.........................9/11.....................



I turned on the TV, to an urgent newsflash,
The worlds press on New Yorks trade center plane crash.
So as i then watched, an accident we're told,
How little we knew of the things to unfold.

I just sat in my armchair, any speach did refrain,
I could not believe it was happenin again.
A jet flying so low, "an accident", I thought not,
The only explanation, A terrorist plot.

The disgust that I felt, and the pain in my heart,
Was nothing compared to those lives torn apart.
people seen running, the buildings in flame,
The journalist mentallity, "who now can we blame?"

With blood on their faces and dust in their hair,
I could not believe what was happening there.
I remember then thinking of this terrorist clout,
The Whitehouse and Pentagon had better watch out.

And ten minutes later, a report I then heard,
The Pentagon building was hit, that's the third.
A fourth plane had crashed, Then where I knew not,
But this was one hell of a terrorist plot.

A little time passed as the millions looked on,
A big cloud of dust, and a tower had gone.
The tower that stood. Alas! was no more,
Like a deck of cheap cards it fell to the floor.

The lives that were ended, the lives that were saved,
We cannot enough thank the strong and the brave.
The innocent that fell, no matter where on that day,
Forget them we will not, a debt we can't pay.

.......................Rest in peace...............
