It’s a tee. It’s a dress. It’s the new Graphic T-shirt Dress.

Like a thief in the night - (Thinking of September 11th)

It doesn’t matter today
if we build a building of immense height
like North and South towers of World Trade Centre
even if to use as defence system
just as we would have built a castle on a hill
in times gone by – times have changed
New buildings and memorials will now stand
in recognition of who/what was on said land
Their memories will always continue
as will the vision on t.v. all did view
Where minds stood still in disbelief
while strike after strike we all felt grief
Where tears were shed by billions of eyes
War was declared with no defence in skies

It doesn’t matter today
we most probably wouldn’t even see
as our enemies approached
Like a thief in the night they came
stealing from us that most precious
those whom we loved or cared about

What matters today
is that for all eternity history has been made
Times we cannot change
Broken genealogical lines gone forever
Marks made on the landscape – irreplaceable
Never can anything stand for what was again
Humanity and psychological effect remains
We may not all have lost those known to us
but we stand together shoulder to shoulder
Encircling those that remain
Knowing each one of us had our soul torn
Our eyes darkened by Hells darkest Angels
When none could believe that before their eyes
Planes came crashing through the skies

Out of ashes a phoenix, a nation arises
and with it the world reawakens
We will not sleep but remember
A tragic time when so high a cost was paid
with unknowing souls now recognised
What right to take such brave innocent lives

Like a thief in the night - (Thinking of September 11th)

Artist's Description

Just wanted to put something of the memory that lingers still today froms cenes we saw of September 11th. Scenes we would like to but will never and should never forget. I do not wish to cause further despair to anyone but if anything bring some ohope to those who are suffering safe in the knowledge that they have the world behind them. What has happened cannot be undone but with strength and assistance from those who had the core torn from them as the horrors unfolded and they watched on in disbelief we can be there for one another. We can make sure the memory of this tragic affair lives on, and in doing so help keep our own souls alive and kicking… in hope all was not in vain, but that we shall learn from it and let the promise of peace win through. My heart and thoughts go out to all…
