A Poem For 9/11

People oh people of the world trade
Memories of you have started to fade
But once a year in the month of September
We all mourn in silence and remember together
Ash filled the streets like a layer of snow
As smoke billowed in morning's first cold
A terrorist's dream filled with hate
It shattered all hope, sealed your fate
Bodies pulled from rubble, not a live soul found
Sorrow seeps from Lady Liberty's crown
People oh people of the world trade
Memories of you never will fade

This is good, I think it expresses a sort of wistfulness and comfort. I like that.

I'd have to agree with your friends; this is really, really well done. :) Nice job.

Thanks, honestly when I wrote this I didn't think people would really like it (and I'm just happy to see someone finally commented on something of mine) I'd love it if you could read some of my other work too.

Great job; this is a really good way to remember 9/11, and all the lives that were lost.
