9/11

For when the terrorists gained a lead,
The world was merely touched,
Nobody really cared for then,
And an idea of bombs was flushed.

Until that promised day of launch,
All was strictly fine,
The world silent as rock,
And mother nature divine.

But this wasn't, a tsunami,
It was a jungle attack,
America hit from behind,
The twin towers back to back.

Both crushed in seconds,
Or minutes we could say,
And neither told the tale,
In a happy, joyful way.

For as the planes struck,
The passengers bewildered and scared,
All died within,
This deadly, vicious nightmare.

People still live the tale,
And they can vouch for good,
For many stayed to help,
Not wondering (eventually) , if they should.

And those that died to help,
We still pay them respect,
For their bravery, and courage,
As well, as intellect...

An enjoyable write; nicely done. In case you're interested, I've got a poem of a similar name (September 11,2001) .
That was really sad... I know someone who lost a family member in that attack... But it was good overall
