Weather forecast for today,
     Country of Thailand, its Stormy,
          Please be careful on your way,
               Cancel your appointments and stay.

Watch the latest news on television,
     Be prepared, that’s everybody’s mission,
          It might be flooded everywhere,
               To those who are travelling.. take care.

Since I have to work on that day,
     I start my morning habit and pray,
          “Please guide me on my way”,
               “I have to do it for the sake of my family”.

As I travel along,
     To school where I belong,
          The sun pop up in the sky,
               And on my face you can see a smile,

Stormy weather turns to sunny,
     Who’s to blame to that news anyway?
          Nobody because it’s forces of nature,
               In a flash it can change for sure.

    I know the feeling of unpredictable weather. Over here in Cape Town, the sun may be shining one moment and the next, there is a deluge which floods everything. Congratulations on your win, Maria. Love, Suzette
