Beyond The Rubble

Recommended Posts

I wrote this today in reflection on all of these events going on in Haiti, feel this:

Beyond The Rubble

Poem Written For Haiti by Big Ted

This goes beyond explanation

You could feel the passion beyond expectations

Just having a life brings appreciation

Not knowing what the next moment will bring

Another drama being faced again

Setting the pace beyond the patience

The little things like food and shelter

Should never feel so complicated

But when our brothers and sisters don't have any

It feels as if the walls are caving in

It's vital that we all stand up to look at our reflection

We might complain about things but we have to come with a humble sense

And strive in our goals to have a lil' more affection

When I watch somebody struggling I could feel a bit tensed

To say the least, just can't accept to see defeat

Emotions rise and fall during each moment

Trying to avoid being in a mind state that's puzzling

Beyond the rubble we shall not be broken!

In the midst of it all hold your head my friends!

When the buildings get destroyed and lives get taken

It's normal to feel remorse

But you just can't extinguish that flame within!

God is with us throughout every obstacle in our course

"We might complain about things but we have to come with a humble sense"

So true!!

That was very nice, Ted. I liked it, especially because it's written from the heart. Props.
