143. Here To Stay

by Theresa Morales - Mississippi Gulf Coast

Katrina we will never forget the day you came
You left behind so much pain
Our life will never be the same

We heard your roar as you came ashore
You came out of the sea and onto the land like an angry hand

You destroyed so much
You made sure we ALL felt your touch

The World heard our cries
People came from far and near
They saw our tears and they felt our fears

First came the water and ice
That was really nice
Then came the MRE's
We now had our basic needs
Finally at last
And in time there was no line
We were able to get gas

Days became weeks
Weeks became months
And now its been a year since you were here

We made it through recovery
Rebuilding has began
The futrue is still to come
Well this is what we have to say
We are here to stay
Even though you took so much away
Our hearts may be broke
But we are stronger then the mighty oak
We have God
We have Hope
