SEPTEMBER 11TH,2001

We won’t soon forget that September morning,
As we stared unbelieving at Hell in the skies.
When cowards came calling without mercy or warning,
And left us dumbfounded with tears in our eyes.

Thick smoke and flames stole a beautiful blue sky,
As cold fear and raw panic manifest in us all.
Then the whole of creation looked up and cried “why”,
As those twin towers shuddered and started their fall.

Deadly confetti fluttered down on the breeze,
As those in the streets ran hard for their lives.
Even the tough guys felt weak in the knees,
As people world wide lost husbands and wives.

Proud American Soldier

Proud American Soldier
(God bless and keep safe our fighting men and women in harm’s way)

I fought beside my brothers, as they died on foreign shores,
I’m proud to say, we fought and slay, our enemies by the scores.

One by one, we fought and won, wars down through the ages,
The history books are written with our blood stains on the pages.

Our skin is many colors, we are women and we’re men,
We stand up to injustices no matter where or when.

I’m a Proud American Soldier, my job’s to keep us free,
I ply my timeless trade so far away, across the sea.

When others cringe and cower, you’ll find us standing tall,
We’ll remain steadfast until the last, of the evil tip and fall.

Come what may, get in our way, we’ll never cut and run,
We’ll stay our course, with no remorse and it ain’t always fun.
