I'm from the Netherlands and what has happened yesterday in America felt like it was happening in my own backyard. This day evil succeeded in it's goal, but in the end it will not win the battle.

One Evil Mind

September 11, 2001

One evil mind
and minds
that weren't free
thought
they could change the world
one day
and
so they did
It only took one hour
to change so many lives
into history
Evil should not win
It did
this day, that's true,
but in the end
it will be slain
That
I will promise you
For good, it conquers evil,
has been always
that way
It takes some time
but you will see,
in freedom
we will stay
