    I built a bridge upon two towers...
    I created a stairway... to the coolness of its security...
    But I failed to realize the lackness of our impurity...

    I thought i was in safe haven America...
    Land of free.. and the Envy...
    I thought i saw Sunny Days...

    Instead i saw a cloud of ashes....
    as i watch from TV as another plane Crashes...
    Thousands deads..
    Hundreds fled...
    To their safe haven...
    Watchin...
    As bodies were droppin...
    On the Sunny Days...

    We had built a mighty city...
    New Yorkers we called them...
    Rude and obnoxious...
    now we are nautious....
    At the sight of their lives slain in vain...
    We watched and felt their pain...
    My question is....
    Has this world gone insane?

    I remember The sunny Days...
    The Cloudy Days...
    The rainy Days...
    Now i'm seeing the Bloody Days...
    Where our skies rain Men and Women...
    Thank the lord their was no children...
    When will all this hate end...

    Cause i'm looking forward to The Sunny Days...

    America's strongest nouns...
    Are found laiden on the streets of New York...
    Money and Religion...
    For money is what drived us to work today....
    Money is what drived us to this dismay...
    But don't think I forgot the other...
    okay...
    For Religion was the decision...
    that forced a tragedy upon our country...
    Which slayed our people and left us looking weak...
    For we let down our security...
    Now our society...
    LIVES IN FEAR... OF THE NEW YEAR!!!

    OH HOW I WISH TO SEE THOSE SUNNY DAYS!!!

    Now as winter approaches and the sun will hide behind the clouds...
    I hear my president talking.. but the screams are too loud...
    I hear my country is on alert...
    But the enemy is partying...
    I hear death is at our forefront...
    and we still go about our daily routine...
    Afraid that if we stopped..
    WE MAY LOSE OUR STABILITY....

    OH HOW I WISH TO SEE THOSE SUNNY DAYS!!!!

    Yet Fall is hear..
    Death is hear...
    Our enemy is near...
    And our society now lives in fear...
    I'm afraid to see the coming the New year!!!

    OH HOW I WISH TO SEE THOSE SUNNY DAYS!!!

    But nevertheless... I shall continue to pray...
    In hopes that the Lord will bring good things our ways...
    That those sunny days may come back one day...
    For the Sun has shined since that day...
    But America's smile... Has GONE AWAY...

    OH HOW I WISH TO SEE THOSE SUNNY DAYS!!!

    TRUELY MY DEAR

    THE SUN WILL SHINE AFTER THE ASH THAT POUR FROM
    DA SKIES AND EARTH BE DRY YET THE SUNNY DAYS AHEAD
    PRAY AND WIT FAITH COMES HOPE
    I SEE THE SUN BREAKING THROUGH!!

    Rich: I truly do pray that the sun may shine again.. I mean here in Georgia.. the sun is beeming you can tell fall is near and the weather is beautiful.. but you can tell in the people.. that things have changed...

    AACOOLDRE: Thanks!! I put this on my list of favorites too. ;)

    this is a very strong piece which speaks truly of the way so many must feel...sadly the sun will not shine from within the heart of those waiting to hear news of loved ones for many days yet to come..a great piece of work..

    each day you breath air, clean or not must be cherished as a sunny day, and today was a sunny day and tommorow is still not promised.
    God bless
