Death from the Sky

Twin Towers

Two Towers stood by the water , they were tall and they were strong. People thought that they were safe and within their walls they would throng. Sadly though for all their beauty, people  were so wrong. Two thousand , seven hundred and fifty two souls perished on that September day. Two planes, death in the sky , homed in on the towers and all the souls on the planes knew  that they would also die.

They were not alone a plane headed into Washington and the Pentagon found. One hundred and eighty four perished there, smashed into the ground. There was even another plane on an evil errand  the good souls on that flight attacked their captors and brought them down in a field in Pennsylvania.  All souls lost their lives.

The killing has not stopped and will not for a long time yet for many are still suffering . The deadly dust that came from the towers frightful collapse was full of deadly things. So say say a prayer for those who died that day and remember those who still are suffering.

Let them and their families know that we shall not forget.

    Hello again well this has to be said and well done for saying it. we shouldnt forget that day and all thos lives lost by a group of evil people doing such a evil deed.

    may god grant them peace and there families too
    as they were so innocent and suffered a awfull death too
    may there lives be remembered everyday
    and there spirits live on in heaven today
    may there families be granted peace of mind
    in knowing we are with them
    and share there thoughts too
    at the mindless act that caused this too
    god will be swift and punish too
    and allah will have is say to ones who
    caused this and punish them too.

      Yes let us never forget . Also the London bombings of July 2005 . There will always be evil in people , sad but true but if even only a few stand up to them all will be well.Remember if no one reacts , remembers or shouts for justice all will be lost. Thank you for your beautiful prayer I shall remember it always. May God and Allah watch over the world.

    how many years had passed since that dreadful day the world was petrified in disbelief and shock. yet still the echoes of that day vibrate in our spines. all around the world we pray for deliverance from the evils that plague our minds, hope there will never be such an event again, let there be peace among humankind.

      Thank you for your wise and beautiful words let us, as you say, never forget. The memory is a good thing to have it will remind us to be on our guard against evil where ever it may come from. It was once said ‘All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing’ by Edmund Burke. Never a truer sentence uttered. Sadly they struck again in London July 2005 but still we must be on our guard and remember. Thank you again.

    I agree with Edmund Burke. Your poem rings out truth and memories that are painful to remember, yet more painful to forget. An outstanding poem.
