he was covered with the evening news

from Freshman year, a project we had to do over 9/11

The Proof
The Bloodshed in order to keep our home,
Red,
The freedom that is plain to see,
White,
The sea to shining sea,
Blue,
The proof that nothing will stop us,
Our Flag.
~~~~~


Moment of Silence
We heard,
And we joked light-heartedly,
About what had happened,
For we had not been directly effected,
As we sat there,
In the requested moment of silence,
The silence cut like a knife,
Though not a word was spoken,
The words were heard clear,
That we didn't know what had happened,
Didn't know what to fear,
At that moment it was just words and pictures,
The silence told us though,
That effects would be great,
And may carry on,
And there's something more to come,
But what shall it be,
How will it turn out,
What will happen to the nation,
We have built our lives about?

<Dear Anonymous</u>
Dear anonymous,
What were you trying to prove,
Why did you try to break us,
What have we done to you,
Are you jealous of our intentions,
Do you wish you could be as true,
Were you jealous of the brotherhood,
Did you wish you were part of it too,
Do you know you made a terrible sin,
Were you aware of the pain you put us through,
Are you trying to make us weak,
Well are you aware,
Aware that we were blind before it,
Aware that we were caught up in delisions,
Aware that now we see,
Aware that we have come together,
Aware that men have died for us,
Aware that even though youre trying hard,
We are like a bird still free,
Aware that from sea to shining sea,
Forever will will be.
~~~~~

<u>Here's To You</u>
Here's to you,
The heroes of my time,
Here's to you the one who went along,
To help those to carry on,
Who planned our defenses,
Without letting them down,
Who walked through the ashes,
And crawled on your kness,
Who bent over backward,
Who the Lord has take too,
Here's to you,
American Hero,
Rest easily.
~~~~~

<u>Ghosts In The City</u>
The ghosts in the city,
Will be out tonight,
The ghosts in the city,
Trying to make things right,
The ghosts in the city,
Whispering in the wind,
The ghosts in the city,
Helping a long lost friend,
Thought the ghosts are there,
You may not see,
May not believe it too,
They don't have to be dead,
They don't have to be young,
From yeasr ago,
Or years to come,
Physical they are not,
These ghosts are ideas,
They are thoughts,
They are feelings,
Intangible,
You cannot see them,
But your heart can,
The ghosts in the city,
The heart of the man.
