The Second Day Of Infamy
By Joy L. Hale

My pillow drenched with tears
Tossing and turning in bed
Tangled in the sheets
There will be no sleep tonight

Sick at heart over yet another
911 anniversary. I must remember
The day, for to forget it is like
Relinquishing a piece of American history

I fear our beloved America
Cannot survive another such
Day of terror upon our country

Memories of smoke filled clouds
Sections of the Twin Tower's blown away
Pandemonium in the streets
As I watched the news through
Tear stained eyes and choked throat


Surely, I must be looking at some other
War torn country. I mourn the dead
As they lay under the blood soaked rubble
Having died a sudden, horrific death.


Please, God hear my prayers
Let our country return to it's former days
Of peace, contentment and
"Happy Days" once again
In your all consuming love for your people
I pray that you will drive the evil ones away.
