Children of Oklahoma
Lost in your school
Swept away by a blind fury

Women of Oklahoma
Destroyed in your houses
Hit without escape by wild air

Men of Oklahoma
Unable to resist to monstrous nature
And to protect your families

People of Oklahoma
So far away but so close to our heart
We cry for you. We are close to you.
These are the only things we can do.

    A mourning poetic announcement, indeed. Well written, I agree with what Linda said.

    Hello Mario, heartfelt, sad imagery! The line "Men of Oklahoma Unable to resist to monstrous nature And to protect your families" made me very sad. I know we all wish we could protect the ones we love from disasters like this... mourning for the world ... Take Care * Linda
