This poem I write
is dedicated
to those who lost their lives

and were mutilated
by their own kind,
blinded by hatred and greed.

That's what you must feel
to watch your own species bleed.

But there we stood
stronger than ever,
showing love to our friends,
while our own hearts were severed.

I dedicate this poem
to those up in heaven
who lost their lives
to 9-11.
