boy's life altered

He feels like he has no family
when really only one has left
only an earthquake shifting everything he's ever known
it causes him to question if everything was ever unbroken once
because all he can focus on now is the aftermath
and he wants to cry
but he yells instead
he doesn't know what to do with this....
these roller coaster emotions that take him for a ride
queasy, he closes his eyes and tries to just hold on
it will be over soon
and then I can get off
(he says to himself)
and then I can step out of this

but somehow he knows
the boy who got on
is not the same boy stepping off
his life altered when the changes began
and what was
is no longer
