My thoughts are with those who have just experienced the largest storm ever recorded. Hurricane Sandy.
I can not even begin to image what it was like but I hope to express the horror I felt while I watched helplessly here in Australia. I know that is no assistance what so ever to those people affected but to those people, please stay safe and your fight, loss and struggle is felt around the globe.
I sit back and watch in horror
As humanity takes nature’s wrath
Safe in my position
Feeling helpless, afraid and lost
As people I will never meet
And places I’ll never see
Are changed from what they were
At the mercy of the sea.
The sanctuary of home is shattered
Some to be drift wood on foreign shores
While others burn in relentless rain
Homes they are no more.
Lives are changed forever while others lose the fight
All the while the world watches
Dumbstruck by the sight
Real time HD images flash upon the screen
Status updates come thick and fast
As those there say what is on their mind.
How long can this punishment last.
