911, Was Meant To Stun! - Poem by Michael Gale

Planes of flame and smoke, exploded to the
side of twin towers, one frightful fateful day...
The shock of horror on observers faces,
filled TV networks, as screens did so, tape
and play!

911, will live on in every nations man...
Because the act was so terrible, it lasts on
every persons memory, as they remember, as
only they can!

Friends and families passed, as well as
police and firemen, The Pentagon was next,
As towers did so fall and crumble, with
smoke and ashes seen, far from East to West...
This is man's final, moral and Godly test!

As man reaches out, to help each other, with
his very, very best!

    I remember the day well, it was quite frightening to see what human beings can do to each other. All those lives lost, for what? As a species we still try to solve our problems in such violent ways, and so the killing continues, even to this day. Bob (Report)Reply

    911, that day will be fresh in my mind, God willing until my dieing day I'm sure. I knew I was watching what actually happened on TV but didn't want to believe it. To think of the mass destruction, it's still difficult to believe. We can only pray that this will never happen again.--Melvina-- (Report)Reply
