Life is tough (a poem)

Not so sure about this one, but this is what I’ve got…

Through floods
fires, storms
mudslides and earthquakes
explosions
collisions
calamities and disasters
natural
and man-made
life finds its way back

What was barren
broken
buried or burnt
in time gives way
to lush and green
clean and clear
plants sprouting
insects gathering
animals coming out of hiding

The earth heals itself
creating something new
from the wreckage
making the imperfect
perfect again
as though that’s how
it was all along
Because life is tough
it’s living that’s hard
