September 11, 2001

I sit and stare at the television,

my eyes are filled with tears.

As I watch the horror before me,

my heart is filled with fears.

We have been attacked,

on September 11, 2001,

I can't help but wonder,

if World War 3 has now begun.

I never thought I'd see a day,

anytime in my life,

So filled with utter saddness,

that cuts your soul like a knife.

This day will live in infamy,

and history will record,

How on this day America suffered,

from terrorism of the worst accord.

The loss of life is in the thousands,

as I saw the Twin Towers fall.

And looked upon the Pentagon,

where a plane crashed through the wall.

America has to react,

and bring our enemies to their knees.

They need to know they'll never break us,

by doing what they please.

Our retaliation will be felt,

they will pay for what they have done.

So no one will ever forget,

September 11, 2001.
