Hurricane Katrina

Opportunity in front of me,
But hope is fading.
No time left to think,
Only one path that I see.

Leave my father behind,
Danger grows closer.
I rethink my decision.
If only I had time to rewind.

Disaster hits.
Dumbfounded, searching for words.
Words come, but sincerity goes.
Everything smashed to bits.

Anticipation for the day,
When I could return,
To what I called “home,”
Waiting for the day…

Reunited with my dad.
Balance restored to my mind.
Everything is over—for now,
And that made me glad.
