Impact of Tsunami

By Mr. Ali Shareef H.Filigasdhoshuge Male Maldives.

When their livelihood is gone,
Leaves of the trees also are falling,
No homes no buildings standing,
The power of tsunami is horrifying.

Children too being carried away,
Nobody could get a grip on anything,
This is the worst catastrophe,
In a matter of minute lost everything.

Tsunami waves, swallowed many souls,
All buildings were reduced to rubble,
Roads are covered with debris,
The whole country went into mourning.

Flood victims, evacuated another islands,
A humanitarian crisis for the country,
No access to fresh water in those islands,
A tragedy that caused untold suffering.

Rehabilitation of ailing economy,
Rebuilding the houses on safe places,
Uphill task before us after the crisis,
With the vulnerability of sea -level rising.
