Special Reprint 9-11 Poem


By Chris Alaniz

I was in class when it happened,

The act that started the war.

Four planes were hijacked to crash into the Twin Towers

They had many people on them killed like they were trash

These terrorists cared nothing for their lives or others

Two of the planes crashed into the Twin Towers

Two of them missed and still killed many

They killed numerous Americans

The terrorists hoped to break American confidence

But failed their mission

They did this to us and in return

We bombed their cities and watched them burn

This act of terrorism brought us together

To fight against the people who terrorize the world

3,000 plus men, women and children died on this day

But we won’t take that in such a light way

New York was in fear

The rest of the United States was in tears

Osama bin Laden was the cause of this pain

Now we are hunting him down

We will find him and make him pay

For all the lives lost that day

The Twin Towers stand no more

But our hearts have come together like a war

BOOM! BANG! Are the sounds we are hearing over in Iraq

We are fighting to get our peace back
