Sadly we learn

Just how fragile life is

As we watch entire communties wash away

In the Tsuami,

As we watched the earth shake

And so many people's lives shatter

Crumble like houses

Against that pressure.

People swept away

Entire families wiped out

A world away

Yet we are touched

We cry

Because a world away

Is not all that far

When we are facing


God protect us all.
