– The Palms Shopping Centre, New Zealand

Dedicated to those lost souls victims of a day from hell! 22/2/2011

The Army men patrol the streets
Protecting people as they sleep
The city in ruins all around
Buildings falling to the ground
Tons of rubble everywhere
Crushing cars and bodies what a nightmare
The ground beneath begins to shake
My eyes wide open another quake
My heart it flutters and skips a beat
Adrenalin rushing to my feet
For I must run beneath the door
Taking shelter as I did before
When will it stop they cannot tell
Our garden city has now become hell
Please someone pinch me and wake me up
I’m sure I am dreaming all this bad luck
At least my family is safe and well
For others this is a story they cannot tell.

Kia Kaha Christchurch, may we become a stronger nation!
