11 September


The Sky was blue and clear
with the bright morning sun light
All of a sudden emerged a fear
and made people run in fright
Unimaginable to usual human thought
a disaster occurred within a lot
People cried for help and support
jumped off the windows holding life in hand
in minutes the pillars of architectural strength
grounded to the earth as a rubble of dust
all that was left for a day was a fear
panic and pain of losing the ones dear
life had not been the same again for many
but the Nation should in Bravery amidst agony
The whole world condemned the tragedy
that was a result of wicked minds in jeopardy
But it's the belief of the human mind
that we can forget and go ahead with life
those made the world look forward
despite the ground being shaken on 9/11
It is the courage of the Nation
that made the people go-ahead
re-proclaim that no matter what
terrorism cannot shake the integrity
the unity and wisdom of the world Nations

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
