Month: June 2014
Look what I unearthed from my old English assignments! Even though it has been a few months since this horrible natural disaster, let us not forget the pain that these victims still feel as they try to rebuild their homes and lives.
To Me, My Heart
White sanded beaches and
Turquoise waters exist no longer.
The racing heartbeat of the ocean
Swept them away,
And now where paradise once was
are bodies and broken glass and broken lives.
The pulse of the waves beat away the land.
This soul-filled, joyous land is now Empty Ocean,
And my people are shattered at the
Heart of their beings.
And so we say goodbye,
To the beat of the wondrous and monstrous
Organ that surrounds us,
We say goodbye.
Farewell to the white beaches,
The turquoise waters, the heaven on Earth, and
To me, my heart.
And for us, our home.
