It Has Been Fifteen Years

poem by: Ronell Warren Alman
Written on Sep 11, 2016

It has been fifteen years 
Since that dark and gloomy day 
We as a nation were attacked 
Nothing but total turmoil in every way 
Thousands sadly lost their lives 
There were painful hearts 
Some people woke up to mass confusion 
Before their day was about to start 
This is a moment that we will not forget 
We will continue on in our lives 
We cannot hide in the shadows 
Just move forward towards the light 
Time will continue to march on 
In spite of darkness 
We must lift ourselves upward 
And make our own sunshine and happiness
