Tragedy to Red, White, Blue (standard:poetry, 117 words)
Author: PoetryGyrl2003Added: Oct 28 2001Views/Reads: 2219/0Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
An inspirational poem about the events on September 11, 2001.

We look back on the tragedy, 

And we just sigh. 

On that day of reckoning, though, 

I watched my peers cry. 

It wasn't that we were just sad 

We couldnt believe what our eyes had seen. 

We didn't understand the hatred. 

How someone could just be so....mean. 

We watched our TVs in silence 

As we watched the second one hit 

And under our breaths we all thought the same, 

"Stupid son of a bitch." 

They can shatter our cities 

And take apart our towns 

But we will survive, 

And America won't ever be pushed around. 

You messed with the wrong people 

Whoever you may be 

But we will get you one day, 

Just you wait and see.
