A Poem by Jessica about the Twin Towers, NY, 2001

Black Tuesday

Terror strikes duty calls to save the lives before the tower falls

The clock is ticking with no time to think but only to react quickly without a wink

People panic people scream they fear their worst beyond any dream

They run with fear and cry with shock they all go running in one giant flock

Over the bridges through the streets they ran in all directions by the quickness of their feet

Their voices cried out for help was heard look here they come all in a herd

The sirens rang loud like one chilling scream everyone knew what this would mean

They heard people's cries many loud and clear they have come to rescue us without any fear

They are the heroes we know they all ran inside into a burning building with no place to hide

It was the day of darkness a day full of fear for no one knew what was near

The towers were to come crashing in a blink of an eye with thousands upon thousands trapped inside

A nightmare, reality shocking but true for this was something no one knew

Screams were heard tears were shed who knows where this will head

The unthinkable has happened the twins fell and those who did this will go to hell

Here we stand we must unite we all must come together and work through the night

Those who are alive are who we must find we must begin our search with no waste of time

Days will become nights as a night will become a day those who decided to do this will soon begin to pay

Our brothers and sisters have died and you are what's to blame

This is where hatred has brought us and ignorance should be ashamed

Many mourn many cry for they did not know their loved one would die

Now we remember those who have fallen and most of all those who ran in to the trouble

They are the heroes we know the heroes that lie beneath the rubble

A tragedy, it takes to open our eyes it took a whole nation by surprise

For NOW we must stand and unite for we should all by willing to go and fight

They took our loved ones and with no shame but now its our turn to play their GAME.
