The marvel of ingenuity disappeared
Within the twinkling of an eye-
From the skyline of New York on 911,
And the world listened to the solemn good-bye!…

No doubt, the rubble are telling the horrifying tales
Of cruel death of fellow mankind-
While the memories of the crumbling towers
Do now boggle my mind!

Moistures from the gentle breeze cooled these towers
Against the morning sun-
But the strikes of calamity appeared on the scene
And dismayed the laughter and fun!

Waves from the New York traffic were greeting the millions
To earn their daily bread-
While in a hurry, the towers collapsed
And rubbles with ashes buried the human thread!

The hapless thousands vanished from the Earth,
Along with the structures of modern time-
While the memories keep on haunting,
And equate human lives with nickel and dime!

Horror from the scene still affects the emotion of
survivors Followed by the fear-
And the agonizing tales of human sufferings
Now drench my weary eyes to tear!

The hue and cry from the demised businesses
Reverberate the modern global air-
While the jobless men and women are facing the brunt
That we must take care!

Let us offer our helping hands to re-build
The lives of such unprecedented call-
And wipe away the tears in a rush
To make these towers stand pretty tall!

Every drop of rain in the ocean helps
To regain water via the evaporation loss-
And keeps the world moving
Where God is our Almighty, the Boss!

In God We Trust is our motto, and unto Him,
Let’s keep our faith with love-
And pray for the blessings, to overcome this tragedy,
From His home above!!
