When the tide rises

So blessed to see everything around me dry, 
Afraid to add to the flood so I won't cry, 
But so many live changed around me so near, 
Now I know life holds bigger things to fear, 
Little things we worry about like losing an extra pound, 
These are things to ignore now that the community has drown, 
Homes being destroyed, causing lives to be torn apart, 
Now is the time we should think with our heart, 
Someone out there needs you, even just a smile, 
Or to know they have a number to dial, 
Waters keep rising and the estimates get higher, 
The homes above water are catching fire, 
Power outages throughout our homes, 
And underwater streets blocked off by cones, 
No water for showers, laundry or dishes, 
This is a perfect time to be granted 3 wishes, 
Wish for a light at the end of the storm, 
Wish that a better community be born, 
And wish for a greater appreciation to form, 
Hope for the best but prepare for the worst, 
Now why didn't we think of that first? 
Well they say birds of a feather flock together, 
So let's form a V and battle this weather.
