Helpless

That feeling of helplessness

Is like no other.

Stomach is in knots,
Heart beats fast,
Throat tightens,
Simply uneasy.

Desperation creeps in
And you feel panicked
Even when you should not
For you are safe at home.

The horrors on TV,
The devastating news on paper.
There is no escape.
This is real.

But why should we escape?
We are part of this tragedy.
We must help.
We must extend our hand.
