Fading Faith, Don’t Suffocate

My eyes take in the devastation,

The damage, destruction, desolation.

No noise

Except a chilling, piercing silence.


A scream,

Quiet mourning for the dead.

Despair settles in,

And relentless waterfalls of tears

Stream down my face.

I’m drowning, drowning…

Don’t turn away.

Can’t breathe…

Stay strong.

Fighting against the ocean,

Forceful kicks towards the surface.

I’ll meet you on the other side.


And golden Rising Sun.
