The Strength of a Tsunami by Gary R. Hess

This poem was written the day after the tsunami which hit the Indian Ocean in 2004. I think just about everyone in the world was effected somehow or another.

"Strength of a Tsunami"

Time withered in the sand
As illusions grew across the land
Many people came to see
What it was that just could not be

The ocean rose as high as trees
With people needing help from you and me
Sending money wasn't enough
As hope and prayers were needed more

All religions and nations
Came together in their aid
The people still have hope
To continue their lives once again

To feel the wrath of such tragedy
We can only imagine how it must be
But one world away, one can not forget
The strength of a Tsunami
