The sky is painted black and grey.
The streets are filled with people screaming. 
As an ancient God throws himself at the shore.
His attack is relentless,
his waves are without mercy. 
Then I see a small girl race out to the beach,
despite the pleas of her mother,
and the warnings of her father. 
She stands barefooted on the murky sand. 
Her white dress billowing gracefully despite the gale winds. 
She faces the growing tsunami wave with her hands on her hips. 
And like the sacrifices of old,
 the ocean wraps its wrathful arms around her and drags her away. 
She does not scream or try to fight,
but instead smiles, 
and spreads her arms wide,
ready to embrace her doom. 
When she has disappered, 
the waves calm. 
The black grey sky gives way to blue.
And the people return to their homes. 
I search the water for her,
but she belongs to the ocean now. 
And just like in ancient times,
it is the youth that save the world for the old.
