Katie Pantaleo

The Greatest City in the World
Was Today attacked, bruised, and scorned
Lives were lost, jobs no longer exist
Feelings of pain, fear and anger persist
Rush Through my mind as
My heart skips a beat As
Tears of disbelief stream down my face
As somewhere, somehow I find the courage and hope to lift
My head high
I'm proud to be a New York-a
I'm proud to be a US citizen
Beauty destroyed as spirit prevails
Grief, hatred, and tragedy fails
