Dear Water, I never thought I’d fear you.

Water, why were you rising so fast?

Water, you surrounded me and everyone I love.

Water, you took away so many lives.

Water, why did you take away my house, the house my mom worked so hard for?

Water, I’m sorry that I blamed you for the things you did.

Water, I know you didn’t mean to do it.

Water, maybe one day I won’t be scared of you.

Until next time Water...
