Written by Tan Nguyen
Chaos suddenly descended,
It’s claws taking hold on everything,
Gripping with tremendous strength,
Ripping, tearing apart all things,
Which I held preciously close to me.
Uselessly watching as the destructions,
Continues to destroy everything I loved,
Witnessing the horrors being played out,
Looking into the eyes of darkness,
Pretending on the surface it matters not,
Within I am breaking into tiny pieces.
The destructions of the world I knew,
Seemingly endless without an end,
Dragging onwards as if time slowed down,
Moving in slow motions deliberately,
Forcing my mind to absorbed,
Every details of the destructions,
Sinking deeply within my heart,
Shattering as I watched the downfall,
Everything which were important to me.
From the ashes and fire of death,
Rosed through the flames which burnt,
Mystical beginnings came into being,
Through the love and sacrifices,
Of everything which I held dearly,
Came a gift from beyond the grave,
An opportunity sent from the divine,
Gifted from the heavens through the lights.
Dust settled from the chaos,
Appearing right before my eyes,
As if it were conjured by magical forces,
Mystical auras surrounding filling me,
Giving me strength to endure,
Continuing my plight and battles,
The end isn’t the end at all,
Only an end to what I used to know,
Closing a chapter of my life,
Beginning a completely new journey,
Brand new stories to be experienced,
Written down to be shared with all.
