It was impossible to hold back the tears

as mothers lost they're sons.

Those of us who were not there,

were not the only ones...

it seems we all lost someone.

The pieces of our lives now scattered

and dreams of tomorrow shattered,

our flag is ripped and torn.

Broken hearts are the reminders

of emotions amidst the storm,

that used to tower above us..

now have fallen to the ground.

In the remains of what used to be

we are reminded that we are what is left,

as our nation moves numbly forward

as these days we'll always remember

how all that we considered sacred came undone

as we stood in fear and full of regret, this day etched in memory...

September 11, 2001 we will never forget!
