Aftermath

Posted by Felicite Piper on June 19, 2011 at 12:21 PM

Waves of loves destruction wash over me

Displacing hope and progress,

taking life to places I thought it'd never be

tsunami

 

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

earthquake

 

disoriented and overwhelmed

struggling to see through the rain

heavy winds dislodge what was once grounded

exposing the pain

only remnants of happiness remain

hurricane

 

must rebuild, sift through the wreckage

create a new path

confront the devastation

and endure the aftermath.
