It Has Been Sixteen Years

It has been sixteen years
Since that dark day
Our nation was under attack
Total chaos in every way
Three thousand people sadly perished
Nothing but pure frustration
Along with sullen moments
And mass confusion
Uncertainty surrounded us
As buildings fell down
Corruption reared its ugly head
Nothing but cacophonous sounds
Some people fought courageously
But sadly, still lost their lives
Grief, pain, sorrow, and anguish
Appeared right before our very eyes

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
My community
My country
Our world
