9/11

This is a compilation of most of my 9/11 writings. I wish I'd never had to write them!

A DAY TO REMEMBER

Anniversary is not a proper word
To mark the meaning of that day
And now, five years from that date
Is not nearly far enough away.

Too many families and loved ones
Still feel that pain down in their Soul
From the Towers to the Pentagon
To those who heard those words, “Let's roll!”

Hearts still ache and tears still flow
On the eleventh of another year
Those who lost will always miss
All those People they hold, dear.

There are still unanswered questions
For those who ask the reason, “Why?”
Was it really necessary
For all of those folks to die?

The nine/eleven Commission
They asked and probed and dug
Their many recommendations
Some dismiss, with just a shrug.

To correct all those problems
Will step on way too many toes
Might take some from their bottom line
We all know, that's the way it goes.

For those who make the rules
Most politicians are the same
The only thing they care about
Is to play the lobbyist's game.

If anything is to be done
The People, are who will make it so
We must write or fax or call
To make our Reps learn what we know.

Seems once they get elected
And they join that unique group
Theyforget from whence they came
And get caught up in the loop.

Not all of them are worthless
But seems there are very few
Who really want to do right
And represent me and you.

Our system is really broken
And there is really no quick cure
But at the polls in November
We can make a change, for sure.

So many things must be done
From our border to border
Butthere should be a sign in DC
That says it all, “Out of order!”

Some of the victim's families
Have been working every day
To try to make a difference
They could show us all, the way.

So as we celebrate the lives
And mourn all of those who died
In all their names we must try
To regain our Nation's pride.

“By and for the People”
Is the way that it should be
And whether it will or not
That is all up to you and me.

FOUR YEARS AND A WEEK OR SO


A week and more of suffering
From another Enemy
After four years of Heartache
In this Land Of The Free.

The Towers and the Pentagon
And Heroes of that fateful Flight
The total lost as yet unknown
From those of the Gulf Shore’s plight.

In both, the hindsight twenty, twenty
Unanswered questions asking, “Why?”
Will the next time be much better
Will we have learned or even try?

Will power struggles cost more lives?
Will they learn to communicate?
Or will it be the same old thing
As the bureaucrats seal our fate?

Nobody’s fault, but everybody’s
From the very bottom to the top
But using Human lives as pawns??
That really must come to a stop!

Some of us are very lucky
We watch the horrors from afar
We can go on with our lives
Never knowing, where those Victims are.

When just a little bit of planning
Could have saved some of those lost
There’s no excuses when prevention
Could be done at not near this cost.

If not for People helping People
And doing the task on their own
We would never see the Light
Where the American Spirit’s shone.

The politicians do their politics
And so-called leaders fight for turf
But, those with boots on the ground
Are the ones who show their worth.

We must have a true accounting
And not let those losses be in vain
We must fix whatever there is wrong
So this will never happen again.

While Osama still roams free
And with more Storms to come our way
Let’s all remember all those lost
Since that September Eleventh Day.

9/11 SHOW AND TELL

There’s many unanswered questions
That all those loved ones need to know
Maybe some important little things
Will help the healing, that goes so slow.

It’s not up to those in power
And officials who think it best
Everything must come out in the open
Before this thing can be put to rest.

The ones who grieve their losses
Are the ones who still pay everyday
And all they ask is for allthe truth
For that price that they had to pay.

They should get all of the answers
At the least all that there are know
And not be tied up in the red tape
By some bureaucratic so and so.
