A Father Left His House (SONNET)

A father left his house at six to go
To work. He had to catch the morning train
And traveled through the tunnels deep below.
The clock struck nine, outside there was a plane.
The tower fell so quickly, he was trapped.
The courageous men tried to help, but failed
Tremendously. The news replayed the track.
Ashes fell from the sky like giant hail.
Just because the building dropped, he would not
Give up hope. For his wife was waiting back
At home, and without him she would be lost.
He ran down the stairs, so gallantly fast,
He fell to the ground on floor number five,
Said a prayer, "God, give my son long life."
