Remember (9-11) - Poem by Rachel Fogle
Yesterday it happened.
Let us not forget.
All the damaged that was caused by Nine Elevens events.
Today it seems its a blur, all the suffering and pain that's occurred.
Until one remembers were still here.
Allowing us to reflect and make real.
All the things that we have ignored that brought this tragedy to our door.
We as Americans must today face,
Freedom comes with its stakes.
Our military is our checkmate,
Yet we as human beings must keep in mind what hatred does to man-kind.
9-11 was the day,
People stopped and didn't look away.
Now today the pain is real.
Yet we've forgotten how time heals.
With that process it dwindles away, and before you know it time slips away.
9-11 was our chance to right the wrongs and bring peace at hand.
It was wrong for such hatred to be.
It was wrong for so many lives to be,
Lost in the mist of hatred & harm.
Forgotten and thrown in the wake of its arms.
If this continues to spin.
Humanity may not have the chance to begin again.
9-11 woke us up.
Let's not close our eyes and pretend it's enough.
It will go on until people see,
Hatred & harm have no place to be.
It brings death & destruction,
Anger & rage.
My life is to precious to live with that all of my days.
Remember the victim's,
Remember the cause.
Remember its our lives after all.
