Terrorist Strike - Poem by Tamara Moir

The rain hits the sidewalk
and splashes into waves
as I run home,
my mind in a daze.
I try to recall
those last few hours,
but as I look back,
I see no towers.
There's ash and fire,
no one can see
and people burdened
without any company.
The day was cold
yet the weather nice
we hoped all those terrorists
would pay a heavy price.
They put a knife in our hearts;
a fire in our souls
and still all the citizens
did their parts.
We hear God Bless America,
and, Let Freedom Ring
we think about the comfort
those words bring.
In the shadows of the night
We hear our loved ones call,
Please come back and help us all.
