From the news, I know Haiti has an earthquake on January 13, 2010, how horrible it is if it happens to one of us! Natural disasters hurt humans and make the victims feel hopeless some times, but help is offered by many and let’s pray for those, hope that things get under control and more lived are rescued and saved.
I have nil control over my fate
When it comes to earthquake,
The nightmare hits my place
With unstoppable pace.
The floor cracks,
The Building falls.
Humans get buried
While rescuing teams hurried.
When I open my eyes,
I see dead flies
And wounded mice,
Lying in bed,
I learned that my parents are dead!
About this bad
Fate I have had!
And feeling helpless,
Strangers care for me instead.
Being still in dread
Of this disastrous dismay,
I chew a slice of bread
Where is my home to stay.
Have A Blessing Day! Everyone!

I am overwhelmed by sadness at their loss. I don’t think I can even imagine how heartbreaking it must be there.
I have noticed that you look like a fairy, but you do carry kindest human heart.
Thank you for the nice memo. 🙂
“wounded mice” seems so sad.
What a tragedy for sure.
I guess we are all passing from the alone again into the alone. But we are never really alone.
You always bring in energy when you come,
with people such as you existing in our lives, nobody will ever feel alone.
I am excited about your visit.
See you in a second. 🙂
a very harsh tragedy from Mother nature, put into delicate words from the master, we all grieve the human loss and disgust ourselves with the looting, well done the emergency teams who are always on hand from countries as America to help RIGHT AWAY, well done friend..:)

Unfortunately, the fact we can watch n still can’t help is excruciating! The lack of medical care is so upsetting-
I work with a couple extremely traumitized Dominicans- who used to live right next to Haiti-
Melancholy poem- Being homeless is a unique feeling. Being a survivor without family left- must be so desolate a feeling…

It is hard when it comes natural disasters, for ordinary folks such as us, we can only pray and wish for better results.
