I was only...

September 5, 2008
I was only nine
That dreary September day
When I watched the towers fall to the ground
And heard the whole world pray

I was only nine
When our country fell under attack
But I understood what had happened
And knew we must fight back

I was only twelve
When my uncle died in war
And his blood was shed on foreign land
After all the pain he bore

I was only twelve
When my family fell apart
When war tore us in two
And broke into my heart

I was only young
When I saw our country rise
To fight back at the enemy
Through all the pain and cries

I was only young
When I heard my country’s cries
When America fell into war
And I understood it through young eyes
