Waves of loves destruction wash over me

Displacing hope and progress,

taking life to places I thought it'd never be



The buildup of stress caused slippage along the fault,

too much for it to take

gaping holes form within,

causing solid ground to break

wounds left wide open

unrecognizable damage found in its wake



disoriented and overwhelmed

struggling to see through the rain

heavy winds dislodge what was once grounded

exposing the pain

only remnants of happiness remain



must rebuild, sift through the wreckage

create a new path

confront the devastation

and endure the aftermath.

Art by Margaret Morrison
