tribute to hurricane Katrina

Today marks a decade 
For Hurricane Katrina 
Alot of people Lost everything
Let me explain to you what I mean a
No one could ever forget that day
It was hard 
To sit and watch what was being displayed 
Once a whole state
Now it was torn
Water everywhere 
How could we reform
Something's people worked for all their life 
Was floating away in the twinkle of an eye
People were crying and dying
Did we offer help
Or did we only think about self 
To be united as one
And had to depart
Leave your families behind
And somehow restart 
Spreaded across the states
No longer a state 
If it didn't teach you anything
It taught you how to appreciate
Life is precious 
Life is short 
That's what I felt
It was more than a nation that needed our help
Children didn't know what was going on
Parents somehow trying to remain strong
A day that was longed 
A lost in the city
Lets stand together 
They didn't need pity
Having to restart your whole life 
Was it fair
Maybe not in your plan
But God did spare
I salute you all for not letting this storm
Stop you from reaching the top
The power of a community 
Was clear 
We lost over 1800 people my dear
Things are getting better 
Building it back one day at a time
In the end know that we all will be fine
A mark that day left 
That we shall never forget 
It hurts still I know 
You are precious plants 
You've bloomed continue to grow
Although things could never go back to being the same
Know that we are here
You guys are courageous
You guys let go of your fears 
You guys have made for these years
And now a moment of silence 
For those who didn't have a chance
Whose life ended in the storm 
This moment is for you 
Your legacy will live on
Because you represent the truth
Life can be given
And also be taken 
But the legacy you gave us will never be mistaken
Your whole identity may have felt gone
But to my fellow survivors know that you are not alone 
This nation will keep you uplifted in prayer 
And if you look over each shoulder
Know that we are there 
Whether you need a shoulder to cry 
Or just let out one big sigh
Look no further 
Do not weep
We will get through this 
We are making it as we speak
10 years have passed 
And you are stronger than ever 
Shows that you can make it through any kind of weather
To those who lost love ones along the way 
Know that they are in your hearts 
And although  hard to believe there will be brighter days 
They say the grass will always be greener
Lets continue to grow as a nation
This is my tribute 
To the Hurricane Katrina
