In Five More Days

In five more days,

it will be September eleventh.

It is a day that we,

have all come to nickname 9-11.

It will have been seventeen years,

since the tragic event,

that shook our nation.


So like every year,

on it's anniversary, 

they will show 9-11 documentaries.

They will show patriotic movies,

and probably each governor,

from each state,

will give a speech,

and maybe say a prayer.

Overall, what really gets to me,

is that in a nation so divided,

it always takes a major tragedy,

to bring this nation together.

If we come together,

as a nation,

then there would not be,

so much tragedy.

I suppose I am only writing this,

because now seems,

like a relevant time.

Maybe it is because,

people are more vulnerable,

and will to listen,

on 9-11
