Attack on America

Terror has gripped us
with hideous sights
that stay in our memories
thru' long days and nights.

Our flags are at half-mast,
a nation that cares 
will all join together
in grieving and prayers. 

Hearts are now heavy,
a war has begun,
we know there'll be losses 
of fathers and sons.

Women will now serve
on those foreign shores,
mothers and daughters 
will sacrifice more.

Those who are age-ed
remember wars past,
of many men dying 
for peace that must last.
Terrorist strikes
tried hard to succeed 
in wrenching our country's
patriotism and creed-

But there'll be no glory 
in what they have done
to the greatest of nations
under this planet's sun.

They failed in their mission,
we won't be denied,
the right to retaliate
now justified.

So, people unite,
be proud, also brave,
they cannot defeat us
for power they crave.

Oh beautiful America,
you always shall be
a beacon in darkness,
the land of the free.
