I am alone on the Island of Death

I am alone on the island of death
Around the bodies of hundreds 
Natural disasters happened a little earlier 
All dead
My enemies, allies, relatives
Some of the most intimate

I am on mass of ruins
Loud noise...Moaning...Unbroken silent in a trice
I am just at the end
There are no tears in my eyes, no fear in chest
I am speechless

I am in the midst of so much death, destruction
Creation is alive
It's my responsibility to rotate the wheel again
Just me.

I think that you've captured the moment of shock well, with this poem. I too, have been speechless at some of these disasters...sometimes you just look around and freeze and then, when the horror is realized...you have limitless ache. A very good poem to ponder.
