Written by HastyWords  and Sean Bidd
Written in support of the Moore community

Heavy was the weight
Of the building storm
Roaring rain screamed
Angry clouds barked
The black sky fell
Scouring the hard earth
Land rendered muddy dust
Nature at her most depraved
Our freedom laid waste

Do you hear them fall?
As the unbelievable fades
The tears of the brave, the lost
In a place torn asunder, twice
Terrorized faces within chaos

With a will to survive
Heads held up, brave
For the children
We do what we must
Harsh circumstances
The reality of life
Confronts each of us
Weakness is devoured
Our mindset, survival

Yet, patience testing every thread
These long waiting moments
Seeking lives short of time
The whole world waits for good news
Needing all the positive we can get

On into the night’s darkness toil
Sounds of victory and heartbreak
Mix in their own tornadic whirl
Rescues and re-uniting of kinds
Till morning breaks as witness
Dreams of better days a challenge
As support floods in around us
The world’s arms embrace community
Sympathizing with natures tragedy

What has now passed, left a scar
Upon the earth and in our hearts
Memories of what was before, tainted
By the trauma laid upon their door
In time they will rebuild in triumph

Moore, Oklahoma will resurrect again
