Angels In The Aftermath
HER FURY SWEPT DOWN UPON UNSUSPECTING TOWNS
A POEM CANNOT SPEAK, WHAT HAPPENED THOSE DAYS
i CRY FOR THE LOSSES, WORTH MORE THAN COST
WHISPERS IN THE NIGHT, HER FURY BROKE LOOSE
a HUSH? FROM DAWN TO DUSK-TEARS AND FEARS
sUCH LOSS OF LIFE CANNOT COMPARE, TO THE
SUFFERING AND LOSS: DESTRUCTION
SHE STRUCK TOO HARSH- A POEM CANT'S SAY
WHAT HAPPENED THAT DAY.
HEROES APPEARED, ATTEMPTING TO SAVE LIVES
TO FIND LOST PETS, AND FAMILIES GONE STRAY
WE DON'T KNOW, WHERE NEW FLOWERS, WILL GROW.
