    Dedicated to Da Street So`Ja who was in there when this attack happened...

    Death and destruction
    the result of a day of chaos
    buildings destroyed
    war torn landscape
    bodies become jigsaw puzzles
    life can never be the same
    eyes full of tears
    for those found and yet to be found
    retribution for despicable acts
    is on the horizon
    yet this can never be undone
    the images can never be erased
    as one emerges
    amidst the turmoil
    whose poetic words
    fortold of dark days
    exposing the problematic decays
    of the system
    he stands
    as tall
    as Lady Liberty herself
    proclaiming
    his gospel of the streets
    that can never be silenced
    in the shadows
    of what once
    were the twin Guardians
    of a great city
    A So'Ja Stands
