“My wish is for you, an end to your sorrow”…

A beautiful tribute…
To such a terrible day…
When it all fell apart…
In the most dramatic way…
The actions of others…
Cost such a high price…
Did they ever think about it…
Or even blink twice…
About their mission…
Of suicide and murder…
Leaving the world stunned…
As the city screamed, we heard her…
Watching as it unfolded…
Hearts and minds confused…
Was this really happening…
This heart breaking news…
Reality was ripped apart…
Seeing terror on their faces…
And the gravity sunk in…
As a cloud of dust replaces…
The double tower skyline…
And a city under fire…
Where heroes were forged…
Out of pride and of desire…
To help the stranded victims…
Those poor innocent souls…
Wrong place, wrong time…
Creating lasting holes…
In families and communities…
Wounds that will never heal…
The collateral damage…
Of the perpetrator’s deal…
We will never forget them…
But as time moves on…
The city started to rebuild…
Showing terrorism is wrong…
Whilst remembering their lost…
Honouring those who died…
Each individual that was taken…
With such poignant pride…
