Falling Towers and Dreams

Falling Towers and Dreams
By Amy Carothers
The day the towers fell
Broke our nation’s spell
Shaking it to its very core
The Big Apple’s security felt no more
Unprepared that it could happen here
Holding tightly to each other trying to abate the tears
From the ashes heroes were born
Brave men and women forgoing the scorn
Entering the Trade Center to save others
Risking their lives for their sisters and brothers
The tenth anniversary brings the past home
People anxious of what the day holds
Remember live your life to the most every day
Carpe Diem, Always Seize the Day
