Your home for everything artistic

As a poet, I often feel compelled to write after some major event occurs, whether that event is something good or bad or simply indifferent. That being said, a few days back I wrote this piece as a part of the emotional journey we are all going through as a result of Hurricane Sandy.

Hope

And so the wind and rain swirled mightily

Over the labors of both man and machine

Relentless in enacting its wrath on each

—————————————————–

When all was said and done

The fierce storm sought only to take

Leaving lifeless bodies

And lost memories in its wake

—————————————————–

But amid all this sadness

And the suffering within our hearts

Comes the triumph of the human spirit

Across the land and beyond

—————————————————–

We will rise from this devastation

Coming back from where we’ve been

We will see the sun tomorrow

Because with hope, we’ll always win
