One Town, One Heart
A poem I wrote to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the Joplin tornado.
|Disaster struck on May 22nd 2011
And came with a terrible cost
A tornado touched down and in its wake
Many a home and a life were lost
The people of Joplin have come together
With a spirit unbroken and strong
To rebuild their town and also their lives
As side by side they all work along
Now people are smiling once more
As their lives are beginning anew
With hearts full of faith they are starting again
While helping each other get through
Time is what it’s going to take
With everyone doing their part
But Joplin is one small town
That has a very big heart !
