22. Aftermath Of Katrina

by Sherry Tillman

When Mother Nature wreaks havoc
Nothing we can do
Feeling so helpless and useless
My heart just breaks in two

Destruction is horrendous
Homes washed or blown away
Death count is climbing
Each and every day!

Things we take for granted
In our daily routine
Such as bathing in water
Keeping our bodies clean

Thousands of people are homeless
Lost everything they owned
Homes and personal belongings
They'll have to be rezoned

My heartfelt thoughts and prayers
Go out to the families
They lost many loved ones
In the Gulf Coast boundaries
