Ground Zero

I see faces everywhere on the street. Children were scared and crying , mothers wailing in despair and man stood by the road looking lost and helpless. Piles of wreckages and uprooted trees. It was a familiar screen playing a different language.

Then i opened my eyes, off my itune and sleep.

安稳

安稳

睡前静思, 感恩自己出生在福地, 除了物价膨胀, 自然灾害的威力似乎感觉不到。

祈祷邻国的风灾没有照成太多的摧毁和死伤, 祝福往者能离苦得乐。

希望灾民赶快重建家园, 收拾好心情重新出发。无常紧跟着, 我们也只好看破它。

晚安。
