Hometown Terror


My hometown is the one you shot

The one you senselessly killed my friends

My family

And so many others I will not get to know


As I write

I hope you burn

I hope you are in hell

Feeling every single bit of pain you have dealt


I don't care about your history

Your pain

What you suffered

or even your name

Because all you are worth is the hell in which you came


I have no words to explain this tragedy

I cannot understand how this happened 

Or why

But I pray for my people

who do not want to slay innocents

And view all as the same

Human beings who's only difference is their name

And do not see color as something that gives privelege

or gives us an excuse to see differences

or hate


I wish I could trade anything

including my life to have all who died back

Because they are special

Beautiful beyond thought

I hope God cradles them

And give peace those they love

Because I cannot imagine

The pain they might have


Dear people who were seamlessly murdered

I hold you in my heart

You are my family

Someone worth fighting for

deserving of much more than love

heroes who should never be forgotten


I know one day others will forget you

But I still remember 9/11 like it was yesterday

And I will remember this day the same

To my hometown and those visiting

I pray for all you everyday
