Voice: A poem of tribute and pain

September 21, 2001

I would like to share with you

Something sadly true, that made us all feel blue.

9-11-2001 was the date,

When most of our hearts were filled with hate.

Many, many people died that day,

Which encouraged many more to bow and pray.

People cried because their loved ones died.

Some rescue workers tried

to bring back some of their lives.

But some of them failed,


and the living wailed.

I'm sorry for the millions more,

Whose hearts are sore

because lives were torn.

Will we always mourn?

Four days later the sky dropped tears,

Of all the families feeling fear.
