Look up in the sky, planes flying low,
Crashing into buildings, not where they should go.
Pilot error it was thought, during crash number one,
Then a second collision, made the people run.
New York under siege, an attack by the air,
The snake named Bin Laden, who else would dare?
The trade towers stood for many a year,
At the world's financial center, did terrorists leer.
The world watched, as the towers came down,
A huge white cloud, and a thunderous sound.
The finest and the bravest, lost their lives,
Calls made, to the husbands and the wives,
We have bad news, your love one has died,
Out of the rubble, their body was plied.
There life it ended, in towers one or two,
Many lives ended that day, others were just through.
What of the workers, looking through the rubble,
Years down the road, the death toll would double.
From sickness and disease, contracted at ground zero,
Families can't survive on the memory of a hero.
Many years have passed, freedom tower erected,
People stay sharp, terror must be detected.
And wiped out completely, US leads the way,
But for now on your knees, and everybody pray,
For the souls we lost on that frightful day,
Ask God to relieve, the pain that day brought,
Renew peoples hope, give direction if sought.
