DARK SEPTEMBER

In the wind does drift memories still
of Dear Ones taken against their will
on that fateful day in September
We do pause often to remember…
to remember a terrorist act so senseless
which ended many innocents happiness
They have failed to tear us asunder…
for all that came from the ashes and thunder
were hands reaching… pulling us closer together…
Now we do seek out terrorists and we will forever…
until all their ashes we are able to cast to the wind
in vengeance… for lives lost in their Twin Towers sin
