You look up

and see a plane,

just in time

to see it crash

in a buliding,

a now historic building.

 

The dust

the crash

the horrible

horrible

sigh

can never be

erased from your mind.

 

Miraculously,

you might survive.

Miraculously, 

you might see

another sunrise.

But it's not meant, 

as another plane crashes,

more dust, 

more tears,

more lives,

taken right from under us.

 

As all you see is 

white,

you can remember

one more thing

family

friends

and the date

that you know

will live in history

forever.

 

9 - 11

9 - 11

9 - 11 = -2

hold up 2 by

your fingers -

peace.

Add the negative:

negative peace,

so war.

 

This date 

idea

and historic even

will live

forever on

in the sky.
