Help is Hope

Help is Hope

A Poem by SparklingYou



HELP IS HOPE
Written By: April Kate


Bodies cold as ice laid on the ground
People screaming their loved ones names
Little kids seeking the warmth of their parents
Emotionally unstable, physically injured
Alive and breathing, but dead inside
Staring blankly ahead, trying to process everything


You hear it everywhere, you imagined everything
Losing a loved one, losing a life, losing hope
You couldn't stop a tear from escaping
How will they be able to stand up again? 
A little gesture but means a lot--A prayer. 
Faith keeps them fighting, it gives them hope


Words of encouragement can quench their sadness 
The victims just have to know your heart's with them 
A single penny can make a difference 
A single smile can give them light of hope 
Every little thing matters, every prayer works 
Share the blessings you received to those who need it


I KNOW THEY'LL STAND UP AGAIN, I KNOW IT BECAUSE I AM A FILIPINO!

I cannot stop my tears from falling while writing this. I've heard and seen in the news how horribly devastated some parts of Visayas in my country were, how thousands of people were dead and suffering. I just feel so sad everytime it flashes in my TV screen. But despite all these, I can still see them smiling through the pain and that made me so proud that I am a part of this race. I am also encouraging those people who can see this to please help and include all the Filipinos who are in sorrow in your prayers.Thank you. Filipinos will be forever thankful. :)

Truly heartfelt piece.

My favourite lines are:

Words of encouragement can quench their sadness
The victims just have to know your heart's with them
A single penny can make a difference
A single smile can give them light of hope
Every little thing matters, every prayer works
Share the blessings you received to those who need it

Let there be love, peace, hope and joy.

Love and Light

I had shed tears as well as soon as I had heard the news. I knew the storm was the strongest but I never knew the catastrophe is quite massive.

HELP IS HOPE

~ a well fitted title, I believed that we filipinos are Resilient people. We can make it through this. I as well my family was struck by massive floods just recently last dec 2011, in CDO. Thank God my family was safe at that time, but we have lost alot. and Many had died as well but not this much like in Tacloban. Now, seeing the number of help, I am thankful.... yet I am really disappointed with our government, sigh... they never fail to disappoint us, filipinos. Nice work, kababayan.

Working out of the country? It's just one of the small things I can do for them. Prayer. :)
