Ive come to this place today

Flew in on a beautiful day

My plane ride here was delved into a book
if not, with clammie hands

As most you may know
I'm never at peace
Till the big bird lands

On earthquake ground
creeping tremors

They lay silent, so the taxi driver said

At night alone down here
sudden movement!
I'll probably freak
and fear

My work of finance brings me here

To ease the minds
of many who fear

My fears do not equal
the pain of those

That live through the sheer
mighty force
That indeed arose

I pray to whom ever?
any god with love!

Now that's a lever

I will give all I can
for my fellowman

See you all soon

Love peace happiness

Sent with a kiss..
