Still, I cannot believe
What my eyes beheld
That fateful
September morn
The shock, the horror, the hatred
It left me numb
And torn
Such evil came that day
Brought by men so cruel
So full of hate
They stole
Innocent lives away
There is no answer to
The question why
Why so many had to die
The tears I wept
Oh, how I cried
For the loved ones lost
And those they left behind
I weep now
As I write this poem
Remembering that day
Yes, still I mourn
For the innocents lost
That fateful
September morn
