I was working
someone said a plane was hitting
I thought it was a tower at the hospital.
The boss a clinical nurse and others as well as me,
gathered in a room that was empty
We watched the second plane hitting
While they were burning the second one started crashing.
She called my father
and the school for brother and sister
It was one when I left work
Headed for class.
Only to see a ghost town of streets.
I sat for ten minuets only to hear
"Class is canceled go home"
Leaving the class I saw a line of cars around the block and farther down
Waiting for gas
Watching the price rise to $5.00
I was only 26
I was worried
I was frantic
I thought that we were safe
I thought that this could never happen
But it did so now we can learn to take more precautions
And be aware of our surroundings.
We can forget what little things happen now but we will never forget all the people who gave their lives for anyone and everyone.
