We can never forget 911

We can never forget 9/11 We will forever remember such a date A date that will live in infamy A date that has everything in it: Sadness, fire, death, destruction and bravery Heroism, sickness and resilience, except happiness 9/11/2001 is a memorable and a daring date That changed the world. Things are not seen like The day before. We have a different perspective About life and everything under the sun We learn new ways of mourning, sighing Fighting, of course new ways of being absolutely resilient No, we will never forget this fateful day where terrorism Became a new word. Everybody is talking about the death Of so many brave first responders: firefighters, policemen And many others who wear proudly their uniforms We shall never forget 9/11. We will never forget 9/11 The sacrifices made by the brave civilians who had lost their lives Are priceless. The eternal flame in our heart cannot be extinguished We know that everyone in NYC and elsewhere will always Remember how the world got shocked, stunned by these egregious And deadly actions perpetrated by a bunch of sick cowards 9/11/2001 is a monument engrained in our brain which will live there For a very long time. The memories of the braves are metastasized In our psychic, no one can suppress them without killing us cold "911" is no longer three numbers but a historic symbol like Pearl Harbor 9/11/2001 is now 18 years old.18 years of tears, fear, pain and suffering We shall never forget 9/11. We will remember. We can never forget 9/11. Copyright © 9/11/2019, Hébert Logerie, All rights reserved. Hébert Logerie is the author of several books of poetry.
