TEARS IN THE RUBBLE

Out of the blue, it fell into gray
This changed all life around
Disarrayed outside, confused inside
For one, victory found

It instilled fear, made life stand still
Lost for breath, hesitant to step
We got to feel every single pang
Empty ache, hollow rage, we wept

The children, the others, the living as well
The martyrs, the heroes, those who fell
The prayers, the stories, the inner beliefs
The secrets, the terrorists tales

While laughter, love, and life collapsed
Leaving nothing but names in the road
It all came down, resembling hell
Many still, won’t be going home

Brave as soldiers, required to fight
A railing there, for we stumble
The blood and sweat do stain the dust
Tears drop deep in the rubble
The enter, the exit, the smash and the bang
The fact that life did crumble
Hung in defeat, crying for the flag
The heart so cold it shuddered
Our world all tattered, dirty, a mess
Time passes, continues a struggle
The fight to find, fix and forget
Forever tears drop in the rubble
With a tarnished needle, this pierced our souls
A prickly sin, it burst our bubble
Though we will survive, keep our land alive
Eternally still, will be tears in the rubble

We will remember, and learn as well
Resolve now, with newer battles
Dare to dream at night, for justice we fight
Run for cover, if again war rattles

Today, forced to face, all of life’s evils
Someone forgot, we’ll still stand free
Suffer in anguish, hell-bent, hunt the devil
Karma is left, for us to believe

Peace rises at dawn, at home we unite
Share a bond that no one can sever
They can fight, and bomb, all out attack
Vicious, immoral, we will break never


Our fortunes remain, wishes do follow
We will smell the sun tomorrow
With the wind at our back, and love still alive
We will harbor and heal this sorrow

Brave as soldiers, required to fight
A shoulder there, for we stumble
The blood and sweat do stain the dust
Tears drop deep in the rubble
The enter, the exit, the smash and the bang
The fact that life did crumble
Hung in defeat, crying for the flag
The heart so cold it shuddered
Our world all tattered, dirty, a mess
Time passes, continues a struggle
The fight to find, fix and forget
Forever tears drop in the rubble
With a tarnished needle, this pierced our souls
A prickly sin, it burst our bubble
Though we will survive, keep our land alive
Eternally still, will be tears in the rubble

(Forever and always, will be tears in the rubble)
(Eternal and still, will be tears at Ground Zero)
