Scars

by Heather Jensen
(Arizona)

They say when a bone heals it is stronger.
America is standing in the ghost of the twin towers
And then they are real again, true and proud
We wouldn't be united if the towers stayed put for longer

American dreams have come together and are pushing up
the towers, creating a nation now united, now hearts same
We are standing together saying, proving, lives not in vain
Surviving when tragedy, horror falls into our cup

Praying,we are all equal, but, in America we
Are special, our remembrance doesn't just reach our own
We give our love to the terrorists too
Knowing, knowing, we have healed, together, you and me.
