January 12, 2010

The disaster struck before anyone had the chance to get away. It was the four most devastating minutes of their lifetime. It left thousands homeless. There was no clean water, no food, and every house was destroyed. Diseases spread all around killing hundreds...

Haiti was no longer a peaceful country.

That is a good point. Maybe for the people that lived there, It might have been to them.

Yeha, wouldn't really call this a poem but very descriptive nonetheless .

Really brings out the devastating disaster that ocurred that day :'/

Yeah, its not really a poem. But its good. Maybe try submitting this to a different section, too, or maybe write more of a detailed poem? :)

I agree, not really a poem, but I think repeating that sounds a bit redundant, anyway. It is very good, though! I guess...Because it wasn't ever something that affected me greatly as an individual, I never really thought about it before...But it's really tragic and sad. :(

this really gets the essence of that horrible earthquake. But (personally) i dont think it is really in poem form, besides that, i love it. Your last line IS PERFECT!
