Falling Child (911 Tribute)

911 was one of the worlds most horrific events. I sure many people remember watching it on their televisions. Everyone knows where they were that day. Do you remember seeing the small black dots falling from the towers? Those people who decided burning was not the best option? Thats who I'm writing about


9. The Leader

I gave one oath, I gave one promise,

That I would hold until the end,

I would to the best of my ability,

Preserve, protect, defend.


September 11th 2001,

A date I won't forget,

I cry as I watch people suffer,

Even though we have not met.


But that does not matter,

Its not what they deserve,

I already see it now how I,

Failed to preserve.


Even though we are riddled with war and hate,

In this moment we connect,

And I cannot express my greatest guilt that I,

Failed to protect.


Hello falling child,

I watch as you descend.

Im sorry I robbed you of a life because I,

Failed to defend.
