The Fire that has Burned, For Ten Years

 

There was a fire,

Ten years ago

And it still burns, today;

It burned a city so deeply

That millions cried, in the street,

In a city that never sleeps.

 

There was a fire,

Ten years ago

And it still burns, today;

It burned a country so deeply

That millions cried, in the street,

Awoken from their sleep.

 

There was a fire,

Ten years ago

And it still burns, today;

It burned me so deeply

That I cried millions of tears,

Awaken from my sleep.

 

There was a fire,

Ten years ago

And it still burns, today;

It burned our hearts so deeply

That it lit up every street,

Awaken from our sleep.

A fantastic write capturing the emotions and I too remember where I was...in school... and like thinking why is the Physics teacher turning the TV on (never played TV usually) and then slowly the significance of the event and the world and the human reactions from all people concerned post 9/11 began to tell me much more about human behaviour etc.... Fantastic write :)

I feel so sad and bad about this. I feel really sad and some what angry that our troops aren't home yet. Just makes me think what has this world come to? Thank you for sharing this write.

That tragic event definitely left a mark on our collective Soul as Americans.
I cry for all the innocents lost...
Lovely remembrance.

I enjoyed the repetion and rhyming of this poem.
Also could relate to the message. I still feel numb
inside and detatched when I think of that day.
My life will never be the same.
