Middle School tanka

Where do I go now?
All thats left is pain and grief/
All that’s left is death.
Through the rubble and debris
Where in the world do I go?
    -Sei Antonides

Wiped out city
earthquake and tsunami
nothing is left
families are split apart
but never losing faith.
    -Eisuke Tanioka

It’s an empty land.
The full moon lights up the sky.
My mind tells me to go home
but there is not more home.
    -Sarah Nakanishi

Beautiful city
now empty, silent, darkness
torn from its beauty
no rain can wash away
the pain felt, it now walks alone.
    -Emma Watts
