Hurican Katrina

So much destruction
because of Hurricane Katrina
many people lost their families
and lost their homes to this

why you may ask is this happening
because they had little notice
they had 5 days to pack up
and get out before she hit them

worlds turned around and shattered
lives ended in an instant
a mark in this nation
that can never be fixed

it may be helped
but never replaced
all the people we lost
all thanks to Hurricane Katrina

build up more barriers if you want
but in the end they'll all be lost
just like the people in this disaster
who can never be replaced

Hurricane Katrina took something
she took the lives
but she did leave something
something that can never be taken from us

Hurricane Katrina can never take away
the pride we have for this nation
and our love for our brothers and sisters
that will help us get through this together

for like we should always say
we are and will always be
one nation under god
even with Hurricane Katrina

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth

Oft I had heard of Lucy Gray:
And, when I crossed the wild,
I chanced to see at break of day
The solitary child.

No mate, no comrade Lucy knew;
