Pray for us

This earth quakes and shakes beneath our feet. And in these six minutes my life flashed before Me... Has mother earth turned her back on us. Inducing fear. Black waves crash against shores unaware.. washing away life that once abundantly flowed. Will these dark and angry seas never subside. decimating homes- destroying lives. With our dreams melted to the core we watch as a cloud spreads, not from the sky but from Mans Energetic ambition. Inciting panic- demolishing dreams- Polluting water. But this moment of pain and destruction isn't insurmountable. For waters can be cleansed, panic and fears will be calmed, homes can be rebuilt, We will live to dream another night, And the lives we've once lived will be restored. We will recover from the disaster that has befallen us. Because we were, are and always will be a strong, resilient and beautiful people. And the splendor of Japan will never cease. Now in this most bleak of moments, and the strongest of test of our will. Pray for our home land.. Pray for our recovery.. Pray.. For us.

    I didn't think I'd ever see a poem on the soup about this, it's too real an issue to be accurately comprehended by a reader. Anyway, I enjoyed your poem, surely your words ignited dozens of prayers.

    Hi there thanks for the entry! I had a suggestion make it YOU who are there feeling this it can be done easily "the earth quakes and shakes beneath MY feet" "with OUR dreams" "we will live to dream" etc. and end with PRAY for us...also run it through spell check "insurmountable" Light & Love
