Waves like mountains
move through streets
Waves like mountains
take lives like treats
Cries of children
echo through towns
Cries of children
become the only sounds
Lives that took years to build
gone so fast
Lives that took years to build
now become the past
Heartbreak and loss
take the place of joy
Heartbreak and loss
make happiness a decoy
Brave souls
help mend the broken lives
Brave souls
bring back the will to survive
Those around you
are there to help you cope
Those around you
will always give you hope!

Hurricane Sandy was a disaster that so many people faced. These horrors should never have to be experienced.
