The day the towers fell

The day the towers fell

A Poem by Candy S. Bott

Fire in the sky - the towers fall.
A plume of smoke created 
on the streets
in their lungs
powdery black and grey ashes.

Putrid smells,
thousands of horrifying discoveries.

Awake for days were the heros
who ran on adrenalin and little else.

"Goodbyes" Unsaid
"I love you"'s Unheard

Say what you feel when people are near.

You have no idea what tomorrow will be.
Make everyday your Very best!

Fight for your rights don't give them up.

I'm from the UK but the event was no less devastating to us over here for such a tragic loss of life and such a barbaric act of cowardice.

I was going through a particularly bad time but was at work, it was around 2 in the afternoon and I was on my break when the news report came over. I thought it was a trailer for a new film at first because I couldn't grasp that anyone in their right minds would commit such an atrocity.

Good poem, as mentioned below - we should be thankful that we live in a country where we need not fear speaking out for what is right.

9-11 taught us we were not safe. We needed better security and protection of our borders. Your words are true in this poem. We need to be thankful for a new day and opportunities. I like how you ended the outstanding poem.
