When Peace Comes - 2004
Grown-Ups

A Country United

by Rooshna KIDWAL

   Tragedy struck the country on the 11th of September

Terror grasped our hearts on a day that all will remember

   Shock combined with anger, pain combined with fear

As we intently watched the news and brushed away the tears

   Planes explode into buildings, causing them to collapse

Maybe a scene from a movie, or just a nightmare, perhaps?

   But that is just wishful thinking, we knew it was very real

Because the families of the victims wait for the pain to heal

   The question continued to echo, only the answer did we lack

Who were the monsters who committed this deadly terrorist attack?

   Now we know their identities: Muslims by their names

And because of these cowards, all Muslims were defamed

   This isnt what Islam teaches; Im a Muslim so I should know

What the terrorists did was wrong, and Hell is where they will go

   Us Muslims did nothing wrong, but still you persist to despise

A group of innocent people, who now fear to step outside

   We will not ask you to forgive us for something we did not do

But please respect us like your own, because we are just like you

   Lets hold our hands with peace, and lets join our hearts with love

Pray for the victims who died in the blue sky up above

   Too high above for us to know how these people felt

The victims in the buildings and the horror with which they dealt

   Imagine the pain of their families, who lie at home in wait

For someone to come inform them of their beloved's fate

   We called it the United States, but it was not until now

That we were a country united under a single vow

   Dear God, Together we stand and together we pray

For all who lost their lives on that sorrowful day

   And protect all the Muslims from anyone who expresses malice

And does not know the difference between a Muslim and a terrorist
