Floodwaters

This rain it falls on my heart – 
The washing out of humanity 
haunts my soul 
drenching me completely

I hope for a reprieve 
I plead for relief 
wondering when the floodwaters 
will retreat

Until then all I can do is endure 
praying each drop 
won’t signal our end


The area in my country is currently experiencing a major environmental event with intense flooding, loss of life and evacuations. I am safe and not in danger. But with this and the war that’s happening in Ukraine, I heart is heavy today, so I turn to poetry. I turn to poetry to help me process the weight of everything I see.
