With the Strength of a Child
        His ripped shirt is barely visible in the dust and smoke. He kneels in the rubble, bloody faded jeans loose on his hips, tan skin lined with ragged cuts and bruises underneath. Long dark hair, now dusty white and matted with blood, ripples in the wind like a tattered flag of surrender.
        He can't feel the pain.
        Broken jaws whisper of sadness.
        Broken voices scream of loss.

        And his broken eyes turn toward the ground, shadowed with fear and weakness. He clutches his head in scarring hands, ignoring the sharp debris biting his legs. He stares vacantly at the cracked concrete lying in the dust.
        He can't see it at all.
        Young eyes glisten with tears.

Natural Disaster
You're a natural disaster
Flooding up the streets,
Wherever you go.
Creeping up behind me,
Brewing up a storm.
Why can't you ever
Just leave me alone?
You're a natural disaster
Don't think you ever
Care about the ruins.
Are you aware
Of the pain and suffering?
The ashes and bones
They're all because of you.
You're a natural disaster
Another family
Is separated in the cold.
Worry strikes across
Their nation.
Everyone knows
What is the cause of it all.
You're a natural disaster
How do I put out
The fire in your heart?
Can your winds
Ever be calm?
Will you please
Stabilize the ground?
You're a natural disaster
Flooding up the streets,
Wherever you go.
Creeping up behind me,
Brewing up a storm.
Why can't you ever
Just leave me alone?
You're a natural disaster

Our Mother Earth
She's testing us, that's all.
She tried to raise us
So we could help each other out
When aid was needed.
Some tried to be independent
And not cooperate with the rest.
Others were mature from the start
So no one would ever feel left out
Unless they wanted to.
But our mother is one,
So why must we fight
Amongst each other,
While watching her die?
Instead, we should be mourning
The loss of our creator
And share her pain.
We are the ones that are killing her.
So we need to come together again
And save our Mother Earth.
