Back to life as if nothing has change
Yet as I look around only dust and dirt remain
From the people that used to hang around the corner store
To the old man begging for change down the way.
You rush to check on your love ones
Then you remember that they are not there
The children are not running around outside
And the oil is no longer dripping from your uncle’s car
The shelter you hid in is suddenly gone
But there is a light that is shining bright over there
You see a familiar face that has been gone for years
When you touch her face it makes you feel real?
As soon as you turn your head, she is gone with the dust
Like the man down the street or the neighbor in the front yard
As you look around trying to see if this is real
You wake up and weep for things that has disappeared.
I just felt as if I needed to write something so I wrote this. I am still figuring it out.
