A Community Distraught From Fire and Loss
Hope Will Rise
When Lightning Strikes
Thunder and Lightning crackle all around,
And there among the dreams dwell hopes for the future.
As all sleep as things are not what they seem.
The wind is blowing out with a force that would ring a bell.
They say it rings out, when things are not well.
The animals and humans feel the earth's crying pain,
And it's voice crackles with a sound of unrest.
The trees are dying from the seering fires,
And they are engulfed in ashes like they never were there.
In the midst of all the forest, and on the land the madness begins.
And terror breaks out like a theif in the night.
Bringing forth it's fury upon the loving families.
Pets look at their masters and wonder why.
Wild animals flee for their lives, but some become victims in the end.
There you will see the sadness, and weaping for all that is lost.
Memories come forth upon the people of this land.
The fires are taking away the homes that should be the strength of the family,
And while we are watching the tragic event unfold with sadness of heart.
Praying day by day as the fire goes on
That somehow and somewhere the time will stop this event,
And yet time cannot send everyone back to the beginning to undo this pain.
Fires cannot be put out by themselves,
Blessings to all the fire fighters who risk their own lives to help others.
These families have been dealt low blows and cannot go back to undo their loss.
Drought claims too much from our earth, and many of our states have endured.
This is America and this happens across our land.
Can we not see that we are not alone?
If it happens to one of us, then it can happen to all.
People must come forth and join forces to help others.
Kamiah, Idaho and surrounding lands... We hear your cries for help,
And definitely prayers and our thoughts you will get.
For no matter what anyone thinks...where two or more gather to share,
Then from this land you will see a new beginning,
But our hearts are melting as we feel the fire enclosing all around you,
Because you have been saddened and hurt by things you could not control.
My call goes out to all Americans to stand by your people through fires, floods,
droughts, and any tragic events.
Our strength comes from our family, friends, and others across this USA.
