Neighbors helping neighbors around the world





a dark day

one cries two, 

three cries

one by one the city cries





help is on the way

as we give and as we pray

to relieve your hurting souls

there has got to be a better day soon





water can heal

water can kill

water can save your life

water can cleanse your soul

how precious and precarious





wind can offer a breath of fresh air

wind can uproot a huge tree

wind can cool you on a hot day

wind can blow your house down

how significant and dangerous





lifted up heads and hands

babies being born as others lay to sleep

peace is on our mind

as we weep and pray for you





neighbors helping neighbors

to rebuild a city

a life a love, a legacy

one day at a time





lose everything you will gain it back

lose one soul and the memories are with you forever





you might ask me what do I know

I know the sun rise in the morning

the sun set in the evening

the stars shine bright at night

and God sees everything from above





I know that everything must change

because nothing stays the same

life is a test,

a series of ups and downs

I know it's hard to see it at times but,

change can be good





hold your head up

dry your weeping eyes

you are never alone nor forsaken

even in the midst of your storm

be it physical, emotional, or spiritual





a new day is dawning

one smiles two, three smiles

one by one the city smiles

This poem is a depicting of - cooperation (Bricks) building bridges of understanding and humanity - as a towel for "The City Cries".

I have enjoyed the reading of "The City Cries", and learned wise a lesson.

Never rest Your pen, sublime Poet!
