A Prayer for Japan

a poem by Hsien Lou, South Africa - poetry writer, author, poet

As the waters strongly approach
The natural disaster decides to encroach
The trembles of the ground
Collapses buildings that were bound
The people cry in a desperate plea
For fear is all they see
Buildings left in ruins
Homes lost in billions
Lives gone in a fleeting moment
A tsunami has taken all in an instant
On my knees I bend in urgency
Asking and praying for God’s mercy

(This is the poem on the current event that took place 11/03/2011 where a natural disaster affected millions of Japanese. Let our sympathies and prayers be with them. I pray they recover.)
