The Crush of the American Dream
A Poem in Memory of Those who died in the 9/11 Attacks
Silence – The only sound of remembrance,
Flash back in time; hear the sounds of an ambulance.
Ten years have been and gone
The memories continue thereon.
Horrific scenes of the Twin Towers,
News reports come flying in,
Time ticks through the hours,
This wasn’t as normal that it has been.
Before the news broke in,
Hijackers commented a lot of terrible sin.
Taking over planes and sending distressing messages,
The total of the dead and injured rose quickly like the market prices in percentages.
Ambitions, Superstitions and Definitions,
One suspect was a name that everyone remembered.
Within months, war was on the way,
The memory of this is here to stay.
Please remember the dead and the living,
Remember their lives in your hearts never abandon the acknowledging.
Try to forgive, but never forget
The lives of those who are now lost and upset.
Dreams can be crushed on days like these
As the echoes of the cries rushes through the breeze.
