I remember that day the sky turned to gray, a loss had taken place; tears fell from our face.

When the Sky turned Gray
Written by Adam M. Snow

I remember that day
the sky turned to gray,
a loss had taken place;
tears fell from our face.

People running,
panic reigning,
on that day
the sky turned gray.

Great inferno crashing down,
bodies falling on the ground.
Children crying,
our love ones dying;

Terror struck reigning fear,
two towers disappeared.
Seeing people breathing ashes,
on their body, many gashes.

I remember that day
the sky turned to gray.
And I, a kid off to school,
not knowing the reality, I was a fool.

But what I remember of that day,
was a nation standing unafraid.
A nation standing together united,
on a day by smoke benighted.

Fifteen years has passed yet still I remember,
of that fateful morning of September.
Still I remember of that day
when the sky turned to gray.

A sad day for us. The world changed and we didn't know yet.
"Fifteen years has passed yet still I remember,
of that fateful morning of September.
Still I remember of that day
when the sky turned to gray."
9-11 changed the world. Not for the better. Thank you my friend for sharing the powerful words and thoughts.

This was the day, not just America would remember but every other nation. It was a dark day that shattered the two towers and turned them into ashes. Many lost their lives leaving behind their loved ones to suffer in pain of remembrance.

That was a wonderful poem in remembrance of that day. Can't believe it's already been 15 years, oh how time has passed. Anyways you did great, describing everything wonderfully, a great rhythmic flow, and most of all capturing the essence of that day and feeling we probably felt a few days afterward.

I was 4 years old when it happened and even at that age, I could sense the fear and pain that was happening

vivid images of a frightening, disbelieving day. Hard to fathom, all too surreal.

Nice remembrance, I think the image of the billowing gray cloud of concrete dust is what people remember the best. Everything it rolled over became a ghostly reminder of all the lost souls taken in the twin towers collapse. Bravo! With efforts like this, they will not be forgotten,I give it five out of five Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap!
