His life turned upside down,
Like a tree uprooted; falling, falling.
The sky turns from blue to gray.
A storm is coming, coming closer.
But after the clouds clear away,
His life is changing, always changing.
Eyes open, ending slumber,
A new day, another chance.
This time’s different,
Wounds are mended,
He is happy,
Filled with joy.
But now they are yelling, angry, fearful.
Words hit, a slap, a sting.
Leaving, Running, Confusion, Hurt.
Frozen by grief, by terror, by fear.
He stands as stone.
A sound pierces quiet,
Off in the distance a siren roars.
