Stranded

Stranded in shelter,

Thirsty and hungry.

No electricity.

Nobody around.

Can you imagine

The devastation?

Can you see

The predicament I’m in?

I don’t know

How I’ll make it.

I don’t know

Where to go.

Taking a Chance

Don’t know the outcome

Until it’s too late to run.

Trapped in a trailer,

No, flooding isn’t fun.

How many days

Will we go without power?

How many times

Did they say get out now, or else?

Storm surge is wicked.

Never seen such a thing.

It filled up my house,

And might just drowned me!

They said we should leave,

But we’re taking a chance.

Maybe God will intervene

To save a smarty pants.
