The Earth is really in Danger

The Earth is really in Danger  

I know with our limitations, 
we cannot reach there to wipe tears from the eyes of all those, 
who have lost everything in this great tragedy of Japan.  
Still I hope that few of these words would wipe their tears or 
may give some consolation to those, who are affected 
by the Tsunami of Japan. Sympathy creates more healing touch 
than the concrete helps every country should offer for the people of Japan.  
As such a tragedy may take place anywhere in the world...Ravindra

In support of the people of Japan

Often the disaster comes, without knocking the door and
Takes away the most precious from the Earth.
We claim we are going to land on Jupiter,
We claim we would live on the surface of new Stars,
We claim to make a flawless colony on Moon
Where the inhabitants of this Earth would live in splendors.

But, we have failed to live even nicely on Earth,
We do not even care much for those, who are facing the disaster,
For those who have lost their love ones on Earth,
For those who need our sympathy, care and love.
Today they are helpless before the grave calamity of disaster and
Need badly their brothers and sisters to wipe their tears.

The Tsunami of Japan has wiped out,
Not only the buildings, trains and cars but
The Homes and love ones in several thousand of numbers, so far.
It has left marks so deep and disastrous,
Years would be required to replenish the loss
O’ God, please wipe the tears from those eyes,
Who have lost, all their family members and hopes on earth and
Are waiting in vain for their dear ones to come again.

    I can't even comprehend what the people in Japan could be going through..That would be a terrible situation to be in..We have seen this now in several places...Now more safety means needs to be put in place but there is only so much money..Of course, looking to the future will not replace the lost lives..Great topic that you have chosen..Sara

    Your emotions and sentiments are well said in this tribute to those who faced great tragedy in Japan. We care, I think...I care, but feel so helpless to do anything but pray for them in the face of such deep loss. God be with them. Help them. Comfort them...

    My heart goes out to the people of Japan. The U.S. is sending lots of aid and I hope more countries will do the same. I love the way you describe how we can't live the way we should on Earth, so some people set their sites on other planets, even the moon. It would be no different where we colonized if we don't learn from our past mistakes. Excellent writing, my friend. Love, Carolyn
