September 11 remembered

Freedoms Voice

On September 11, a blow was struck, a whimpering fanatical surge
That targets mostly innocence, in its quest for opposition to purge
But standing tall in New York City, with its foundations deep in the earth
Are the hearts and souls of the New York people and what they know they’re worth

When terror struck, they didn’t fade, they didn’t cower away
Like bees in a hive, with survival scent, they blew the dust away
And marched right in to destruction's jaws, to death they showed contempt
Courage preserved for all of us, in rescue's final attempt

Men of steel were born that day, their deaths a defiant stand
Shown to all who witnessed it, then echoed throughout this land
New Yorkers were, reminding us, that our way is to preserve
And fight against all tyranny, as it's in liberty that we do serve

Freedom builds and shapes the metal, of the women and the men
Foundations laid by ancestral right, we’ve been reminded once again
That courage comes not just from victory, but to resist and in taking a stand
And preserve for future generations, freedom throughout the land

September 11, is not unique, in that we are often under attack
From tyranny abroad and tyranny within, we must always watch our back
As freedoms host, we stand exposed, a beacon of libertie's choice
Threatening our nation, anneals our faith, with a New Yorker’s resounding voice.
