Children's Questions of 9/11

byThe_Misplaced_Gypsy©

Why can't I fly?
Why do people lie?

Why is the grass green?
Why can't the air be seen?

Why did mommy cry?
Why did daddy have to die?

Why are some people bad?
Why do I have to be so sad?

Was there something wrong with the planes?
Could it happen again, exactly the same?

Is mommy ever coming home?
Is daddy going to be alone?

Are they all going to heaven?
Did you know the little girl was only seven?

Why did they have to do it?
Will they ever regret it?

Will we all be okay?
Will we see them again someday?
