Tsunami Disaster
Author: Sarah Taurus


One second on the beach,
combing my hair,
then one second later,
was water in the air,
the sound like a freight train,
came so quickly,
Such a tragedy had struck,
with nothing to gain,

the water,
swarming like a plague of bees,
stung me like a thousand trees,

the thought of death,
was in my head,
what can come of this,
I am sure I'll be dead,

then there it was,
light shown upon me,
it was,
was it a hellicopter,
to rescue me?

How lucky I say,
as I look down on what's left,
I say to my self,
I'll never forget this day.
