About the Poem

I cannot imagine how devasted those who lost loved ones in this tragedy must feel, but as an American, I feel we all lost something very dear to all of us on 9-11-01. Now we have the opporunity to gain it back by standing together forever - not just through this tragedy, but for all of time as a free nation.

Hopefully this poem will help us to heal and become stronger - together.

Rebirth Of A Nation

The towers have fallen
All around the world we hear voices calling
For our loved ones lost today
We share our tears with the world as we pray
Why did this have to be
Why did these terrorists take our love ones from you and me
Our lives forever changed, our world will never be the same
With tears streaming down our face, again we call their name
This tragedy has changed us forever
Now we must join forces to become stronger than ever
The loved ones we lost this day were not in vain
Their lives sacrificed to bring us all together again
The time for healing is now
We must help each other and stand together somehow
A stronger nation was reborn today from this tragedy
A nation standing together for all the world to see

Great poem. I'm sure it will touch other people's life.

I really believe that what happened is wrong, yet it has shed a light on a new born patriotism. However, blood was spilled and what did that solve? Now we must take more blood and kill others. Maybe I do not understand, but why kill others after you have read such a touching poem like Paul Wilson's. Keep on writing Paul.

Your Poem Made Me Feel Like We Should All Come Together At A Time Like This And Be A Stronger Nation!It Was A Good Poem And Everyone Should Agree!
Queeta
after reading this poem i felt a tear fall down my cheek. it was so touching to read someone else's thought on this horrible action that took place this week. i fell like everyone should come together and try to be stronger if not for themselves at least for all the others that have lost loved ones or that have been overwhelmed with fear of what will happen next. i wanted to vote for this poem because it made me feel more patriotic and fearless than i have in days after this has happened. thank you Mr. Paul Wilson for your heartfelt words !
Julie
Paul, This poem is so beautiful and very compassionate.I love poetry and I also love our Country. This is so sad what has happened to our country.I have my Flag flying here at my house in honor of our Country! My heart goes out to all the people who died and got hurt,not to mention theirfamilies who are grieving,also to all the rescurers who risked their lives trying to rescuse all the people there.
