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.
Black waves crash against shores unaware..
washing away life that once abundantly flowed.
Will these dark and angry seas never subside.
With our dreams melted to the core we watch
as a cloud spreads, not from the sky but from
Mans Energetic ambition.
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.
