A 9/11 Poem By Wilmington’s George Allan: Where Were You On That Day?


by George Allan

Where were you on that day 20 years ago?
Did you watch the September sky turn black
And see the towers fall and cover everything below,
While people ran without looking back?

Did you shake your fist and cry
As you stared at your TV in disbelief?
Or say a prayer to the silent sky,
And call loved ones to share your grief?

Did you think of the children who lost a mom or dad
While you pulled your kids closer to you?
And were you proud but also sad,
Watching police and fire do what they do?

The towers were downed by insanity,
But the proud lady in the harbor stood tall.
We questioned this attack on humanity.
As tears flowed for those who gave their all.

On the eleventh of September,
Don’t forget to remember.
