    Penned with ease, I'm sure your mind flowed like water while you were writing this, since it's not difficult to relate to. Yes, that day was a very sad day and I feel sorry for those people but I'm afraid I have to agree with Adi Cox. I'm not being racist or whatever but something fishy is definitely going on. Still, let us come together and unite our spirits and our hearts to reach a bright future destination...10. (Report) Reply

    I felt vividly the magnitude of this tragedy, right here on 42nd Street and 8th Avenue, in the heart of Times Square where I work, witnessing the first firetrucks rushing downtown to Wall Street and watching the skies filled with black smokes, it was very sad, a day in my life I will never forget, great work my friend, you got my vote, Love and Peace...

    it was one of the saddest days ever happened. it was unforgettable, and sadly was also one of the greatest inspirations for poets in the whole wide world. (Report) Reply

    Yeah, that inevitable day! A day of sorrow and agony. Perhaps the tragic event happened to let people see how God hold us on his hands. he sudden death, the survivors and the memory! Unity in some aspects of life, war, feuds, troubles, showing everything will end to nothing but death...so let there peace, love and unity.! Great commemoration! (Report) Reply

    You have captured this tragic moment in your poem. The disbelief of what happened that day. My heart goes out to all those people who died, but what really happened that day? What hit the pentagon? Why did so many building collapse when they were designed to withstand such a disaster? Many innocent people died that day but I am suspicious of America. I wonder if poetry can be above politics. Nice poem.10/10. (Report) Reply

    I was watching TV here in the UK last night and they had a programme on the 7/11 atrocity. It was about the people who fell or jumped from the towers to escape an even worse death. It was a spell binding programme with photos of those who were falling. They named it 'The Falling Man'. One man in particular was represented, and somehow he capsulated the falling of all the others who were strickened with an impossible decision. Your poem has captured exactly what I was watching. So sad, so awful, so unbelievable, so tragic. An event that was alien to our world. An excellent write and very worth reading indeed.

    Let’s love each other
    Mourn and cry together
    We should not be killing each other
    Let’s shower each other with love
    Think and dream of a better tomorrow

    Yes, I agree; stop the war on people...read my poem Philosophy of War.
    It was extremely sad and traumatic day; 9/11...but war in many countries is like them living 9/11 day in day out.... (Report) Reply
