Sorrow on 9\11

Written by: Ismael Nieves

Upon this gloomy and terrorizing day,
clarity is obscured by the clouds colored gray.
Restrained tongues may not have much to say,
but those tearful hearts express the *flay.
Oh, so much grief that can't be delay'!
due to the love one's that from since lay.
And, as those left behind gasp for breath and pray,
even so, the wonderful memories they'll potray.

*Flay-to strip the skin or hide off especially by beating.
