In remembrance of 9/11/01.
For now we clean up your destruction,
and we plan and we hold tight.
We taste our tears and with each breath
we pledge our vows and regain our strength.
Our notice you have.
Now shudder as The Towers did,
and scream for mercy unheard
You will feel our numbers
now unified for all time
marching as one nation
the free loving citizens of the world.
Before us you will fall.
We will not tolerate your destructive evil,
the killing of our innocents.
Our justice will be swift and true ,
and you will then know
that when you hurt one of us
you hurt us all.
You cannot hide from us
we will sift through every particle of sand
find every needle in every haystack.
As you wait think about us,
feel us marching onward,
for we’re coming in numbers strong
but you know not when we’ll arrive.
And leading us ever onward
in pursuit of peace everlasting
will be the greatest crusader of all
The Son of God,
Our Lord Jesus Christ

Though surrounded by your evil
on this avenue of death and disbelief
we fear not your treachery.
We defy you with heads held high
we the people will fight back
with honor, dignity, compassion and pride.
Our strength is not only in arms
but in our multitudes unified for all time
we will retaliate. We will not bow.
Know of our approach.
Know that we’re coming.

|I hope for peace.
...peace breeds peace, war breeds war. Love breeds love...hate breeds hate...
I would rather peace and love to breed like bunnies! :)
Amen to your pen!
Love and Peace~

|The day after is when Allah cursed them carrying the atrocity in his name, a curse that will handed down to all the repugnant "believers" that rejoiced of innocents killings forbidden by the Koran.
