9/11 REMEMBERED


As I recall, those feelings so grim.

The bleeding majestic’s of towers twin.

They stood as American brothers so tall.

The horrific scene of watching them fall!


Screams of panic coursed the streets below.

Eyes held in awe as they swayed to and fro.

This disbelief before me stirred all my fears.

Two silver birds are dead, my eyes now in tears.


What has happened? Who is to blame?

Lives destroyed, brought down in flame!

I hear speculation, the name they say

“Osama Bin laden”, who the hell is he anyway?


The events revealed, more nightmares dawned.

“Oh my God, they just hit the Pentagon”

And what is this, in Pennsylvania I see?

All those brave people on flight ‘93’


Some years have pasted and Wounds now healed.

The scars remain while hearts still feel.

What was lost and forever is gone.

Visions play now only in movies and song.


Have you forgotten those lives in pain?

Fear instilled our country, never to be the same.

The fence was covered with prayers, pictures and sorrows.

Please Lord, shine down your Son, on all our tomorrows.


Oh how blessed we are, the ones survived.

For the War still trembles, the loss of more lives.

Please don’t forget the sadness on 9/11!

May we always remember loved ones up in heaven!

A Bellicose Specter (Revised)
(Warring Ghost)
By: Joseph T. Manzo
(760) 244-5452


America—land of freedom where no country stands as tall,
  Ever vigilant, but not immune from those who seek her fall.
While embracing life and work in the American way,
  Her towns and cities are at peace at the start of the day.
New York City is rising in the morning light,
  Growing with the human part of God’s might.
The Twin Towers an engineer’s dream of steel and stone
  Filled with working people—Americans not coming home.


Living on the world stage from God’s spoken might,
  Not knowing death’s plan, and who will win the fight.
Police and firemen, guardians on American soil,
  A cities’ living shield protecting her from turmoil. 
This morning’s good-byes with life glowing bright,
  Will haunt loved ones wishing to hold them tonight.
The specter of death they battled many times in the past,
  Will demand that today’s valor will be their last.


Near our Nation’s Capital waiting for the call day or night,
  Stands America’s five-sided symbol of power and might.
The best Army, Air Force, Navy and Marines,
  A just nation’s God-guided justice machine.
Many times on the terrorist slate,
  They responded with justice not hate.
This day’s attack will force peace to give way,
  As too many folded flags were earned today.


People meeting destiny this Tuesday in September,
  From Boston to California, four flights to remember.   
Travelers starting out another day of their lives’ mystery,
  Unaware fate brings them an unwanted role in history.
Terrorists traveling on board with malevolence to stage,
  Violently taking control with suicidal rage.
Giving one’s life during war may bring a heaven-free stay,
  Giving one’s life to start war may not be judged that way.


Misguided terrorists look at America with hate and such,
  Their fools’ mindset that Americans don’t amount to much.
Televised belligerence is culminating into a spiral of hate.
  Bellicose thoughts are spreading virally among America’s great.
They attacked America—the world’s Freedom Shores!
  All that seemed so important before won’t be anymore.
On nine-one-one-zero-one there will be peace no more,
  A bellicose specter came to America’s shores.

If only we could go back 10 years ago in time
And erase the most egregious crime of mankind
A crime with no heart, no compassion and no unearthly mythical being called a God guiding its wings.
The world stopped for that day
Breathless and gut punched as a nation we learned evil has no soul
Evil has no conscious or accountability but will forever etch itself in time
10 years ago in time
10 years ago in time a day rattled the foundation of our being and country
We stood, stared, cried, and screamed in awe of the magnitude of human cruelty
All in the name of a God…whatever you chose to call that God
People jumped and people watch forever haunted by the sounds of thuds person should hear.
Shoes were found. Pictures blew in the wind. A paperweight lay untouched.
10 years ago in time

10 years ago in time
You helped, gawked or ran…..or you died.
Now, flags fly full mast and many have forgotten.
Future generations are not taught about 10 years ago in time.
10 years ago in time is not about me or you or your God
It is about the loss of spirit, a soul and a foundation of liberties in which we could enjoy the fundamental pursuit of freedom and happiness.
This includes keeping our families alive on an ordinary Tuesday morning.
10 years ago in time the unthinkable became thinkable
What will become thinkable in the next 10 years in time?

It has been almost 10 years now since that world changing day, and it still seems like yesterday. That day will forever be burned into my memory and my heavy heart. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about it. I choose to keep it fresh in my mind, I'm scared that if I don't, it's like forgetting. Although you are all gone in body form, your spirits live on through our hearts, and your loved ones memories. We will never let anyone one of you be forgotten! With much love, admiration, and respect, love kayla
