A Poem for Nepal

From majestic mountains topped by snow,
to subtropical plains where the Ganges flows,
families in barren homes warmed only by fire,
nurture sick children whose health is dire.

Children, born differently from all the others,
stay at home, ashamed, alone with their mothers.
We bring them help so they are whole again.
Changing the outside to heal from within.
