Erosion empowered by crowded drops of rain
A flowing energy attacking a dam of sand
A force overwhelming it just cannot contain
Without assistance from God’s unprovided hand

Like castle walls that fall by trebuchet
allowing a swarm of pike-man to rush inside
In an explosion of nature the dam gives way
Leaving a hole that darkness chooses to hide

Three travelers unaware of nature’s war
against a highway made by man’s poor work,
Are captured by the vacant hole before
they realized death was hidden by a sky so dark

Though two escaped, the innocent and pristine
life was stolen from my beloved sister Justine.
