What We Forgot (America) - Poem by Weldon Davis

I wasn't a felon that day
Or a drug dealer either
I was an American

I think everyone else was too
Everybody dropped their pretty little boxes
We like to place each other in
We were one and we were strong
Hell
That day even came with a slogan
What was it again?
Oh yeah
'Never Forget'

What was it that was supposed to be never forgotten?
Most people will say the lives we lost
And that is a noble sentiment in itself
Yet I believe there was more
That should be remembered

What we should hold in our hearts
For all time
Is that for one day
All the negative castes were thrown aside
And we stood tall
Together facing the sun
As Americans
If only for one day

Topic(s) of this poem: patriotic, social, unity
