9/11 - Poem by Billy Loving

Another 9/11 again
How long has it been?
Ten years ago
Where did all the time go?
From youth to middle age
Still locked within my cage
Deaths too numerous to comprehend
The sorrow within
No change has come
At least not where I sit from
Night turns into day
While I continue to pray
For a day when I can sit in peace
When the frustration will cease
Images I see so clear
Alone again in my chair
Smoke from the towers
Ashes coming down in showers
Watching from my living room
Time to go to work has come too soon
Students to be feed
Horror, left unsaid
No time to mourn, no time to fear
Everything remains unclear
To the dining room I run
President's speech has begun
Hopefully the morning's attacks have ceased
Whole world it has reached
A job that has to be done
The leader, the living, the fortunate one
Ending of the day
So much happening as I go about my way
Coming of the night
Sleep the wonderful respite
Dawning of the day has come
Aftermath just begun

    Yeah its scary to see world is like a war game, a small misleading group is very dangerous, its like a can be killed when it just a small fire, if it started to become big, it recuits all to be big fire and burn all it i think its time for us, nations to gather to find the can come from anywhere and and reason because misleading spark is just need a cause to make it alive.
