Twister - Poem by Randy Johnson
A powerful twister tore a man's life apart.
It took his wife and kids and left him with a broken heart.
In just a moment, his entire family was killed.
A marriage ended that took twenty years to build.
The years he spent mentoring his children came to a tragic end.
He wishes he could erase his memory so he never has to feel this pain again.
He wonders why the twister had to strike where it did.
Was it God's plan to take his wife and kids?
Wanting to provide his family with a better life, he worked his fingers to the bone.
It was all for nothing because now he's all alone.
Tears form in his eyes as he recalls a time with his wife when he first kissed her.
Everything he held dear in life was destroyed by that twister.
