In memory of that day waking up
and wanting so desperately to forget
hoping, praying it was nothing but a bad dream
my home, my family,
going to school that day,
mom forcing us out the door.
I'd rather stay to cling to the things I love
and am thankful for.
my heart was pounding, my brain over filled.
I screamed out in a crowed room
but no one could hear.
