Poem: 9/11

 

I still remember the day,

11 years old,

just home from school,

sitting on the sofa in my school uniform,

the TV screen filled with smoke coming

from the Twin Towers,

the images of people trapped,

of people jumping from the burning buildings,

it’s become a horrifying moment in history

but I can’t see it as history,

I remember it like it was yesterday.

Hate killing innocent people,

pain,

devastation,

chaos and death.

Rest in peace to all those who died in the 9/11 attacks,

may their loved ones find continued strength.
