I told him, Im writing a story.
He told me, Youre not allowed to write stories.
Fine. Its an essay then.
Essays you can write. Novels, novellas, cryptic messages .
No, no short stories. Short stories are stories.
But I can still write an essay?
Yes. He turned over onto his stomach. Why are you writing an essay?
Youre not allowed to write an essay for you. Not until youre an adult with a job where
John, what day is tomorrow?
He looked at his calendar.
So I can write my essay now?
9-11 RemembranceTears fell down my cheeks,9-11 Remembrance3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
As I watched the people run,
Disappearing into the smoke,
Screams ringing in my ears.
The thoughts ran through my head,
But I couldn't gather anything,
I stood there as innocent people died,
Gave their life for something that wasn't true.
Paper and debris dancing in the wind,
Bloody faces came from the rubble,
Filled with horror and sadness,
Tears still fell.
Children clung to their mothers legs,
Asking why God let this happen,
Unable to answer they just held onto their children,
Praying quietly for the ones in the mess.
Sirens echoed over the screams,
It seemed like the people where moving in slow motion,
As I stood there and watched,
A man fell to his knees and called out to God,
Asking him to save him,
Did God answer?
Many of us won't know.
Many watched in horror as the towers fell,
Some in there homes as they started their day,
Not thinking that morning would be the beginning of hurt and war,
The beginning of a time of grief and dispare.

pray the dream will never fade
pray the pain will go awaye
pray for our brothers
pray for our sisters
again and again we will say
God Bless America
This is for all the people who lost lives in a tragedy
That never should have been
For all those who lost hope
In things that should still be
This is something more then a war worth fighting for
Even though this war shouldn't have to be fought
People are fighting innocents are dieing
Life go's by without stopping yet time stands still
Because no one can tell the different nor do some care
Its hard to believe that good is still there
When shadows are all around
Fogging our minds with heart breaking crimes
& it feels like there's no place to hide
But don't let your eyes and ears deceive you
Listen to your heart and believe we can make it through.
For those forever trapped in the towers for those still flying in the air
for those who lost lives trying to save others and did not care
who were fearless
