Crashing Down

That day was the day
I heard the sound
The cries that sent
My world crashing down.
As I watched T.V,
Smoke filled the air.
As tears filled my eyes,
I thought…
How could they not care?
The took our fathers,
Mother’s, sisters, and brothers.
Some of America’s greatest lovers
Some people lost a little, some people lost it all.
Pain filled my body,
As I watched the towers fall.
I met a little girl
Who lost her mother
Her only wish was to have
Said goodbye and that she loved her.
“9-11”I yell out loud,
The day my world came crashing down.
