Washed Away

People screaming,
children crying,
everything's breaking down.

Whatever happened
to those days
when you knew what
to do,
when everyone knew
what to do.

Shelter has
turned into
a death trap;
and realization
hits you hard.

You're going to die.

15 meter wall
of destruction sweeps
houses and
landscape away,
erasing your whole
off the face of the

You wish you had
more time,
more hope,
time to say good-bye
to those you knew.

The walls explode 
around you,
windows and doors
and you close your
and wait to be
carried away.
