Nepal

Back on your feet
After all has tumbled down
The heart of the city still beats
The blood flows through
While for others it drained out
Buried under the rubble
With first steps still shaking
After the shock waves have rolled by
Some fearful hearts sit and wait
Will another quake come and shake
Steady steps gather momentum
Hope held out in readiness
For those who walk toward its voice
Little by little
Brick by brick
Life by life
The pulse rising once again
To a new day
Courage
Unflinching courage
Through the storm
A new humility
A quiet confidence
Peace begins to settle once more
Across the same mountains
That shook the earth
