"World Trade Center Poem" - Aleja Bennett
Beneath the smoke inhaling the flames
people are dying with unknown names
Disaster was the final master
running, crying, jumping out of windows
no time for laughter
Oh America, Great America
Will this bring us together?
Surprising innocence of death
Not even being expected yet
One tragic incident never to forget
The pain, the mess, Can we handle it?
Love is being wasted
Taken place by hatred
Giving is apart no more
Is Devastation what we're living for?
More Crime!! More Crime!!
Stricken by the clock of time
How many more lives must die?
leaving parentless children to cry
Oh my father in heaven I ask Oh Why?
Do we live in a world of the fiery eye
has brought on emptiness
has become a dangerous warrior
By a sick twisted individual slayer
Can we now as a people awake?
For the W.T.C.'s loud quake.
