Stranded in various places,
Feeling helpless and scared.
Thoughts of their loved ones,
Running frantically in their mind.
The people responsible for,
Ensuring the safety of the masses.
Today they had failed terribly in,
Keeping their promises.
Amidst all the chaos and fear,
Came help from people unknown.
The spirit of the city answered,
The cries of help in its own way.
Today religion wasn't a hurdle,
And differences were pushed aside.
Today it was a day of,
Humanity prevailing above all.
The day my city sank was the day,
The city's spirit worked its miracle.
Ensuring that her children were safe,
The city gave up her sleep once more.
