As They Came Down

As They Came Down

A Poem by Summer Windton
"

A poem in rememberance of that terrifying day: 9/11

"
Smoke filled the air,
He struggled to breathe.
Wondering if he was gonna make it,
He was only thirteen.

It happened so fast,
He didn't know what happened.
He was walking to school,
When it happened.

People crying, bleeding,
Tossed upon the street.
Motionless and unmoving,
Their death they arranged to meet.

He replayed it in his head,
In his blurred memories he seemed to drown.
He remembered ever so clearly,
As the Twin Towers came down.

We will always remember that day, September 9, 2011.
