“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…

“Burning in Hell, trying to rise above it”…

The cities heart beats…
Throughout the night…
Haunting sirens echo…
Flashing bright lights…
It’s a relentless buzz…
That’s always speaking…
But seldom pausing…
Never, ever sleeping…

With electricity flowing…
Through its veins…
This living entity…
Holds and contains…
Millions of hearts…
Constructed for loving…
But in the darkness…
Most are cheating…

And looking for sin…
Away from the streets…
Down the avenues…
To feel complete…
And fill the void…
The expanding hole…
That needs healing…
Before Devils gain control…

Blinding their eyes…
To the symbol of liberty…
Rising above them…
Higher than the trees…
Standing tall and proud…
A constant conscience…
Persuading eyes to see…
There will be consequence…

Unless they take action…
Learn how to fix things…
Repair the damage…
And grow some wings…
Not sit back and take it…
Or hide within a shroud…
But take charge instead…
Blow away the dark clouds…

And find a place…
To reflect and pause…
Try break the cycle…
Identify the cause…
And make a change…
Because city life goes on…
To another strange day…
And another sad song…
