A poem on the Japanese tsunami – Friday 11th March 2011
It was just like any ordinary day
Then, without warning, all hell broke lose!
Causing many to become confused
As the monster tsunami wickedly
Slammed into their way
Now, nowhere is safe on the ground
With giant waves and water rising all around
Many trapped people hope to be found
The massive destruction that brought chaos
Has seen people in shock and so lost
I ask: “Why is the angry sea causing so much harm?
Why can’t it stay calm?
Why do you destroy lives and homes?
Don’t you know that many may have to live alone?”
But despite facing a crisis
The Japanese people will witness
The milk of human kindness
As 45 countries stand united to display virtues
That is one of the finest
These search and rescue teams have sprung in action
Undoubtedly, they will display love and compassion
They will give the Japanese people hope
As they struggle to cope
Let us light a candle and say a prayer
For all those in the land of the rising sun
I am certain God is watching over all of you,
HE will rescue you, so you need not be on the run
