Murder, Mayhem and Despair

Murder, Mayhem and Despair
When I think of the eleventh day of September
That's what thought I'll have to bare
Planes designed to take people here and there
But on September 11th, they were used for murder, mayhem, and despair
I ponder the thoughts and the heart of man
Who could create so much havac on Americas land
I pray that God does not allow me to hate
All because of this sadful September date
I pray for you too my fellow man
That September 11th and hate will not become hand in hand
Murder, Mayhem, and Despair
The only solution is forgiveness and prayer
