i wasn't even born,
i wasn't even in the womb
when nearly 3,000 people
met their world trade center tomb.

i can never remember,
i can never look back
on the day in america
when all things looked black.

i can look at the pictures
i can look at the film,
but for some reason
my heart lies still--

because I never saw this happen,
i don't hold this memory.
i've only been taught this
as a matter of history.

but i will not forget--
though i will never remember--
what happened on
that day in september.

but i'll hold on to
my parents' bitter memories
of those 3,000 men and women
who went up in flames, and down in history.
