Georgie Waters, Grade 6
People talking and people walking,
Children sleeping and birds are talking.
Then the quake starts hurting,
People help but it’s not working.
People lie on the floor,
But others are under more.
Children cry and adults look by,
Some get by and some die.
Asia helps and Europe does to,
Even though it’s hard to get through.
There’s not a lot of food,
And there’s no good mood.
People are crying and weeping,
On the streets they are sleeping.
The death and destruction is callous,
As the victims ask “Why us?”
