Lost Decade

It's been 10 years since that tragic day
Does pain fade with time?
And if we can't prove hate, can we prove a hate crime?
It's been 10 years since that sad day
As a kid, I watched those planes hit the building
Too young to understand I can't explain the feeling
It's been 10 years, and it's still a sensitive topic
Thinking my dad could save the world, but he still couldn't stop it
Thinking God save us, even cries from the prophets
Touch it with hearts not hands
Because as hard as we try to forget, we just can't
As you watch 8 million people crying in disbelief
When the trees burn down, it's hard to turn a new leaf
As they steal your hopes and dreams but only the best thief
Can take what he can't see
Is it a dream? It can't be
In a second you could lose your entire family
Now could history repeat itself? It's in the books
But every time I hear a plane I take a second look
Because when it first happened we never looked
But if it never reoccurred it be a look
This tragic day wrote in blood in forever's book
I hope when we finally do forget, they close the book of the past
They never look back to the date
That our hearts were hit by an earthquake

This Poems Story

As a poet, I am called G. Successful. I was raised in New York City, a city of eight million people. I've seen many tragedies, but September 11, 2001 was by far the worst any city has ever faced. With the recent death of Osama Bin Laden, all the emotions that were experienced on that day came rushing back. As a young lyricist, I wrote solely from the heart because out of the many things in life we will have to overcome, 911 will plague our hearts and minds forever.
