America United Still We Stand

Updated on November 15, 2017

I wrote this poem sixteen years ago when I was just 14 years old shortly after 9/11. It remains a day I will never forget. I don't think anyone who lived through it will not remember the precious and innocent lives that was lost. I hope you all like this poem. Forgive me if it sounds a bit corny. I was very young when I wrote this. Please comment below if you like it.

It all started on a bright and sunny day. the lives of thousands who knew it would end this way.

Children, mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters never got to reach their destination

But America United we have stood as a nation, to be the voice of the innocent ones

Who did not get a chance to speak, to fight, to cry but only to die and to their family members utter their final good byes.

Yes America has fallen to its knees over this tragedy, that is now part of history.

And though this great evil may have taken so many precious lives,

It can not take away our great American pride

No never this awful tragedy caused by man,

Because America United Still We Stand

      A heart rending poem about the innocent lives that were lost.Far away from India,we also felt the same as you.We the Indians promise to be united unanimously with the Americans against the heartless terrorists.
