Stuck In A Flooding Zone!



Stuck in a flooding zone,
My home is gone,
My clothes are wet,
My books are soaked,
My friends couldn't be reached by phone.
...
I see
A sea
of Water
Around my living quarter.
No place to stay,
No chemicals to spray,
No medicine for treatment,
No mood for entertainment.
...
I feel the isolation
Via the lack of communication.
Am I hopeless?
Am I helpless?
If NOT,
How can I survive on my own?
May I get a loan?
Please don't tell me that I am wrong,
Please pick up the phone
And take initiatives to act upon.
...
Stuck in a flooding zone,
My home is gone,
My clothes are wet,
My books are soaked,
My friends could not be reached by phone.
...
I pray for the misfortune to be gone
To end this heartbroken song.

I can't imagine how devestating it must be to go through such an ordeal! Well done, Jingle!

Life is Chaos. Scary things happen everywhere, all the time.

nana_ang_poppaphil said...

Nice post Jingle. Life does throw us some curve balls sometimes, and Mother Nature can be pretty cruel.

Ed Pilolla said...

i've never been the victim of a flood, and this great writing takes me to what it's like to be stuck on a rooftop.

It reminds me of Ondoy, the typhoon that hit our country last year (September).

welcome to my world of poetry said...

Many years ago our home was flooded plus ceilings down because of a burst pipe, it was devastating to say the least.
I loved your poem and it brought back the memories of the kind people who helped us.

Mr. Stupid said...

This was a nice post, Jingle. A Flood can be pretty devastating. You presented the exact feeling of being a survivor here.

william said...

floods can cause a lot of damage, great insight into the tragedy :)

Eric Alder said...

You're kidding me!

There's an Alphabe-Thursday AND an ABC Wednesday?

I wrote something yesterday that works for both! I'll go submit them!

Thanks, Jingle!

5thsister said...

Oh Jingle...so sorry to hear of your misfortune. I cannot imagine your circumstance right now and can only pray that things go better. God bless.

Peg said...

Good expression of the angst and fear and isolation people must feel in these situations!

Amy said...

Oh that is not a happy thought at all. I hope all is well..

Have a great first day of July..

laterg8r said...

great poem for an unpredictable life :D

ChrisAu said...

just nice for s'pore.... lots of flaSh floods lately!

Jenny said...

Hi Jingle. I love "I see a sea". That is such a great line.

What a frightening tangle with Mother Nature. You wrote about it so well that it must be incredibly vivid in your mind still.

Thank you for linking up to Alphabe-Thursday's letter journey through the letter "X"!

You X-cell at this meme.

A+

OH, to be on the roof is too much=0( So much to think about.

Have a great day,

Sam Liu said...

Brilliant poem, Jingle, the rhythm and emotion are excellent. And yes, I most certainly do agree...life is unpredictable, we cannot see the future. But we truly are the authors of our own life story, we make our own luck.

Tina said...

I hope this is fiction...but from how real the poem seemed, I'm thinking perhaps this is all too true. I wish you the best!

The Muse said...

If you have written from experience, my heart felt blessings...
Floods are not fun! And your levity is intertwined with the sense of anger and fear that floods do bring. It is an intriguing mix, on which keeps the reader alert and their feet dry :)

Happy to visit you on this x day!

May The Words Flow,
Blessings From The Muse

Oh, my! I hope this is fiction - but it sounds real and devastating.

Caty said...

well done, Jingle. is this fiction?

Jingle said...

This is a fiction, Please worry nothing...

I live in south central of the U. S., my place is cool and my family is safe and sound...

I write this poem because I heard news from the radio when I drive my car that there is flood somewhere in another country...

Thank you for your concern!
Smiles!

Debbie said...

jingle I am glad to make you smile. This was a very heat warming post.

mbkatc230 said...

Well done! Our home flooded years ago due to a burst pipe, and it was awful. You captured the feeling of helplessness perfectly. Kat

Jo said...

so true Jingle ... life is totally unpredictable

Lourie said...

Very well done, indeed!

Red Couch Recipes said...

I have HAD flooding....but not major flooding and any flooding is horrible! My thoughts go out to you. And when you are done with this, would you let me know about your blogger name of Jingle. I read a book once and there was a boy they called Jingle and I am just kind of curious and nosy! Joni

H said...

We've had too many floods in parts of England over the last few years. Fortunately, I live on a hilll, but I feel for those affected.

Bahadur Hussain said...

I like it.. :) nice job :)

island of peace said...

that must have been a cute surprise :)

island of peace said...

it reminded me of my last rented house in kolkata- which was submerged under one feet of water every day for twenty days or more with tide.

that is, the water used to enter and go with two tides. it was one of the worst nightmares that can happen to any one.

Roger Owen Green said...

reminds me that that flooding is both devastating and increasingly, unpredictable


Good take.

ROG, ABC Wednesday

I like the rhythm in your poem, and it's a terrible feeling to feel trap like that.

Love this post, Jingle.
I have memories of floods during my college life.

Have a great weekend.

There's a lot of flooding in Houston right now. Hopefully it doesn't get as bad as in your pic.

Christy said...

Wonderfully done. I cannot imagine going through the devastation of a flood.

Sarah said...

Wonderful poetry to contemplate. Thanks!

cj Schlottman said...

Jingle,

My heart goes out to you and yours. I am blessed to have never suffered a flood, and this post brings some things back into perspective for me. A powerful and courageous poem. Good writing.

Life is about the unexpected. If not for that, how boring it would be.
