Sandy

Sandy

A Poem by JanieB
"

God bless all those that are affected by this awfully sad disaster.

"

 

Sandy

 

 

 

A fairground roller coaster

Stands alone on ground full of destruction

Once a fun place to go

Now the sadness that is left is incomprehensible

 

 

Hurricane Sandy has been devastating

Leaving behind the aftermath of despair

Homes have been burnt down

People now with ashes as memories 

 

Floods on the streets

Engulfing homes and businesses

Dragging with it the debris

Boats and cars strewn everywhere

 

Subways under feet of water

Cascading down the escalators

Into the tunnels where the trains should be

People home bound with no access

 

Filling up on essential supplies

Water, bread and tinned foods galore

Unsure of when they will resume their lives

Sitting at home just waiting

 

Lives lost to yet another tragedy

Families in distress and pain

Loved ones missing

Please God..no more pain and suffering..

The news film crews move on, and it takes decades, if ever, to fix. The sad part is, I am not sure God is causing the pain and suffering..
