No bread, no butter for them at home
Innocent souls, no place to call home
Piercing to a homeless heart
Possessions crunching and tearing apart.
A wall of water surged in all direction
Houses flattened sans storms protection
Everything was dragged with the wreck
Alas! a milestone ' round everyone's neck'.
The village now smelled like a beach
When sea salt seeped into the land as far as it could reach
Fierce wind caught them by surprise
Saw the torrent from the defiant skies.
Bodies paralysed with fear; a group never ran
Sat on bended knees, then prayers began
Others dismissed a sound of cries
Dread reflected in everyone's eyes.
No fear, no fear in their hearts
Face another day - another starts
Can't see clearly through the cosmic mystery
Yearning be a part of history.
They crossed the bridge early if you don't know
But were afraid to go
And were afraid to see
Corpses scattered on the troubled sea.
