Never Forget

I still remember this day As clear as the sky is blue 

Like it happened yesterday 
I was in middle school 

In 7th grade 

12 years old 

Sitting in English 

I remember 

My teacher 

She turned on the tv 
After that it seems like time skipped 

Like time jumped 

From moment to moment 

From fear to fear 
We were rushed out of her class 

Then we were in the big hallway, bear the entrance 

Full of panicked mothers and crying children 

I was scared, crying 

I didn’t know much about the geography of the city 

I only knew my favorite uncle was in the city 

My mind was racing and all these people were around us 

Then my neighbor came for my sister and I 

Not my mother, she was there, she drove their to help

My fears grew worse 
Finally we were home 

From that day, and for a long time 

All we could watch, was the news 

What they showed us on replay 

Over and over 

Images 

Never leaving our minds 

Burned into us 

Forever 
The lost souls 

Forever mourned 

The sworn vengeance 

The tragedy that brought together a nation 
Today

I remember 

I never forget 

This is for the lost 

Who will never be forgotten 
-B.
