The early busy morning in the city that never sleeps,
halted in one instant in hurls of smoke so deep.
Shortly after, my principal called me to watch this attack unfold,
It was so surreal that like the buildings I shook as this began to behold,
Twisting, falling, innocence lost, people lost forever
Loved ones praying, the missing, the found, memories not to sever,
Tears falling, joining every hand standing, united as one,
Against the attack of a bold demonic creäture had begun,
For in liberty is strength,
In liberty a nation finds the means.
For precious life and freedoms held within,
will never let such terror rain again.
