The Drowning Streets - Poem by Areena Arora

I saw the waters
Rising to the harbours

I saw the clouds
downing from the sky

I could feel the diusaster
I could see the disaster in every mother’s eye
I then saw a mother cry
Crying for her little boy
Parted by the harsh waves
With many of her cries

I could feel the disaster
I could see the disaster in every child’s eye
The disaster of being parted from his family
The disaster of being parted from his real life


I could feel the disaster
Standing there, as waters grew higher and high
I saw my home destroy
I saw my family drown and die

Before the disasters reached me
It was calm at the sea

That morning it was calm
And with dawn came the dark

As it’s said before the storm
Comes the calm…
