    dots9/11 tributedots

    On that clear day
    With the shining sun
    Children on the street that play
    All of that was suddendly taken away

    A dark shadow flew past
    A second later a mighty blast
    People yelling and screaming
    Tears on the face streaming

    A vile act of destruction
    Just to create this obstruction
    Thousands of innocents dead
    Not a word left unsaid

    We are not seeking revenge
    Seeking to avenge
    and find justice for these souls
    That now walk their eternal patrols

    Since then hundreds of lives taken
    Seeking the cause behind this
    We might have been mistaken
    By searching in that dark abyss

    Maybe one day
    This will be solved
    But till then stay
    While this conflict goes unresolved

      Firstly, I can't think of any reason why this would be inapropriate. Now, my opinion. I think this poem could need some improvement, I have to say the writing scheme seemed rather forced. And I don't like poetry to be forced. I like free verse a lot, because most of the poems written in free verse have more emotion, and I can really feel what the writer wants to say. I am not saying rhyming schemes are never good, but it really can kill a poem sometimes, because the writer can be limited in a way.
    However, you have chosen to have a rhyming scheme, but then you suddenly change it around, you skip from abab to aabb and then again to abab..
    And about your choice of words, there were parts that I liked the vocabulary, but in some places I didn't, like in the last stanza. with solved and unresiolved. Obviously they rhyme, but that is jsut because the 2nd word is the negative of the first. It's like rhyming a word with the same word.
    So. Enough about that part. You know, when reading this poem, I really had to think of the day it happened , which is pretty obvious, I know. But the thing is, I don't know everything really good, because 5 years ago.. I was still a child. I was only 11, and when it happened, I was breaking down the lego house I had made once. which indicates I really was a child back then. When I came downstairs, I saw my father watchin tv, I thought he was looking at a movie, so I asked him which it was, but he wasnt. The towers I saw, were not of some action movie, He told me it was real, and I remember looking at those picures .. for a very long time. It was exactly the way how you said it in your poem:
    A dark shadow flew past
    A second later a mighty blast
    People yelling and screaming
    Tears on the face streaming
    And now, looking back at it all, I realise it really was a dark shadpow. I seen this video, never released, made by amateurs, filming what happened, and the funny thing is that you donet see a plane, no where. Which is one of the mysteries.. which, according to me go really crazy when you hear about it, that it might have been a CIA complot.
    ..Maybe one day this will be solved...
    Sorry for rambling on and on, but this all is just what you made me think of, and I like it when a write makes me thinking.

      I dont find this to be inappropriate. It is just honest and states what has happened in your own words. I think you did a good job writing this one. This day will never be forgotten, so devestating and heartbreaking. I feel for every victim and their families. To lose someone this way is unimaginable. It is hard to believe it has been five years, I remember this like it was yesterday. This is a good write. Take care.

      Honesty is what you wish honesty is what you get....

    On the poem i love how you made it rhyme it was simple yet passionet it holds a certain part of you as you read and it keeps a hold of you long after the words stop.

    THis is beautifuly poetic and it holds sadness along with many other emotions. i only wish to know what was going through your head to have such beautiful verces streaming out. this is an amazing peice.

    I am not very patriotic and i practice my democratic right to speak against our so called "leaders" yet this poem still holds much of me.

    This is a beautiful tribute and the many loved ones who lost so much that day i wish for them to read this sad but amazing poem. I am sad to addmitt i love this poem. Im sad to admitt this bc i hate admitting things period lol. You are an amazing writter and im honored that you have asked me to read such a glorious peice. i love this and shall add this among my favorites.
    thank you so much.

    all the love
