Where were you when the Twins fell?
I was lost between the worlds of reality and dreams.
In limbo while CNN blares it's siren call;
"The World Trade Center has collapsed!"
He was sitting there on the sofa eating his
Chicken pot pies, watching in horror as
People jump to their own certain doom
It has been 6 years and many, many tears
Since the fall of 2001.
I know my baby has been smiling at me
From that place he went to when he
Took his final breath while hovering
A few feet from the floor.
He made love to me there
And he died there,
And since then I have cried there
And here in the place where the worlds
Of reality and dreams cross paths
That maelstrom of racism that soon followed the attacks
Will be the scourge of the nation for years to come
Who knew it was going to be a crime
To be brown, to be chocolate, to be muslim?
As the Twins fell, a piece of the
American Soul fell with it.
