A-Bomb Poems

Dear poems' lover,
Here are some touching poems about Hiroshima you might like.
All of these poems are made from toddler under 5 years old!

1. An Atomic Bomb

When an atomic bomb falls
Day become night
And people become ghost

by : Hatsumi Sakamoto (3 years old back then)


2. My Daddy

Hiroshima, lively city

Daddy, died there
Daddy, gone, with the atomic cloud
Daddy, who died at the castle
Daddy, who I lost when I was little
Daddy, whose face I don't even know
Daddy, who I would love to see, even once in a dream
Daddy, I want to call him, and to hold him

If not for the, Daddy would have lived
He would have stayed in our home
And the bicycle my brother wants
He would have bought

by : Yoshiko Kakita (2 years old back then)



My little sister Yoshiko
In bed with bad burns
Asked for tomato.
While Mummy was out
Buying out
Yoshiko died.

"With nothing but potatoes*,
We killed you,
Didn't we." Mummy said and cried.
I cried, too.
Everyone cried.

*potatoes mean sweet potato
by : Tomoko Sato (5 years old back then)


4. My Younger Brother

Trapped among collapsed wooden boards,
My younger brother was groaning,
Then he begged for water, saying, "Water please! Water!"
I said, "I don't want to go into our broken-down house".
He became silent and.. past away.
If only I had gotten water for him!

These great poems are made by the testimonies who was under 5 years old back then. It was hard for them, losing their family.



A-bomb Testimony

Dear interested people,
This testimony is based in a real true story directly from the victim.
Please enjoy!

Taeko Miyoshi (9 years old back then)
At August 6 I was at home when a flash of light, like a lightning streaked over my head. Then everything went pitch black.

When it grew lighter again, I've found my mother, my grandmother, and I were lying in the rubble of our house.
Glass fragments was peppered on my body. My blood was spurting from the wounds. When my mother spoke, something dark red and looks like fish eggs dangled out. It was actually her internal organ. But, I just stared at her throat in silence.

My mother found some clothes and ripped it into pieces. She tried to stop my bleeding, by binding the clothes pieces to my wounds. She was desperate to stop my bleeding, although it's hard for her to breath. Her hand was wet and shiny with blood.

Then we heard voices, "Hurry! Get out! Fire is approaching!". A man picked me up and I screamed, "Mommy!". The man carried me over the rubble to a streetcar. My mother and grandmother stayed there, and they gradually dropped out of sight. I recall, my mother waving to me weakly with her red hand. It was the last time I ever saw her.

Along the streetcar tracks, victims of the bombing-their skin burned and dangling in strips., their body was covered by blood-staggered barefoot down the road. They were strangely silent.
I spent the night on the riverbank watching the sky burned red. All around me was junior high school's students, that looks like a burnt black doll.

"Mother!" "Water, please!" "I'm so hot!". Their voice gradually grew fainter and finally they died. It's odd but I don't feel lonely nor scared. We were all simply a human-shaped spirit with no emotion at all. In fact, it wasn't until three days later that I felt pain from my wounds. At the relief station, they removed the bloody cloth and I screamed 'till I lost consciousness.

When I finally came to, the war was over. But, that's when my suffering really began. My body was littered with tiny pieces of glass and maggots crawled in my wounds. Every night I replayed in my mind, over and over, the last image of my mom waving to me. As I looked up at the beautiful stars, I would think of her and quietly cry.

I actually didn't want to remember about the bombing, but children need to know the terrible cruelty of war. And so, with hopes and peace, I began to share my experience



Some Explain for Hiroshima's Disaster

At 8:15 a.m. August 6,1945, the first atomic bomb was used to attack Hiroshima, Japan by the U.S.
The bomb exploded 600 meters above the center of Hiroshima. In a blink the single explosion killed 40% of the Hiroshima's population.

People in 3 kilometers radius was badly burn. Their skin was peeled, lots of cut glass stuck on their skins. Bleeding from head to toe crying for water "Water! Water please" 「水!水おください!]. Calling their parents, complaining to people about their injures, "Mother, it hurts.. it hurts.." 「岡ちゃん!いたいよ。。いたいよ。。」. I was thinking, "Why? Why there supposed to be war?".

Innocent people died, crying quietly doesn't have any tears left. They vomit blood, their internal organ. It's worse enough!

Things are just getting worse, a rain.. A rain falls from the black sky of Hiroshima. It was a black rain, causes by the nuclear radiation. People that got so desperate for water drank the black rain, doesn't know and doesn't care about the effect. In their mind their just thinking water, family, LIFE.. If they just don't drank the black rain, they would have more chances to live! They're walking like zombies with their hands in front of them, maybe because of pain.

It was only 1 bomb! It can destroyed thousand of innocent souls!
They called the bomb A-Bomb

GEMPA 11 MARET 2011 (Jepang dapat bangkit!)

Semuanya dimulai hari Jumat sepulang sekolah. Aku berangkat ke rumah Sausan karena sarung tanganku tertinggal di rumahnya. Sebenarnya aku belum minta izin, Sausan juga belum beri tahu ayahnya. Tapi, karena saat Sausan pulang ayhnya pasti ke sekolah untuk Shalat Jumat dia tidak perlu meminta izin (kata dia loh..) Aku juga tidak memberitahu ibuku karena aku hanya ingin mengambil sarung tanganku. Sausan dan aku berjalan bersama ke Mansion-nya.
Saat sampai, dia pun masuk, aku menunggu di luar karena kalau masuk aku akan terlihat di kameranya dan akan terlihat ayahnya Sausan. Sausan berkata agar masuk ke dalam saat aku melihat ayahnya keluar. Dia pun masuk.. Bermenit-menit kemudian ayahnya tidak keluar, aku pun berusaha masuk. Tetapi, masalah lain muncul. Aku lupa nomor kamarnya, jadi aku tidak bisa masuk. Aku coba berkali-kali tapi salah, jadi aku memutuskan untuk menunggu lagi.
Saat aku ingin mencoba lagi, ayah Sausan keluar dari mansion-nya! Dia bertanya aku lagi melakukan apa. Aku menjawab sespontan mungkin kalau aku mau mengambil sarung tanganku. Ayahnya pun memasukan nomor kamarnya dan Sausan membolehkan aku masuk. Hah? Aku lupa lagi lantai berapa kamar sausan!
Di dalam lift aku sudah ingat lantai 2! Aku masuk ke kamar Sausan, aku sebenarnya masih lupa nomor kamarnya tapi aku tahu arah-arahnya. Aku mengebel dan dia mengizinkan aku masuk. Dia berkata lain kali aku harus hati-hati (dasar Sausan). Di rumahnya ada adik laki-lakinya, kita berdua, dan kakak laki-lakinya bersama teman-temannya yang banyak (sekitar 7 orang). Di sana aku malah jadi main Wii , dan internet bersamanya.
Kita bermain lumayan lama, sampai ayahnya sudah pulang, tetapi ayahnya tampak tak terkejut melihatku disini. Kita memakan snack seperti french fries dan ayam. Kita juga bermain dengan teman-teman kakaknya. Mereka mempakai Wii! Huh, kita mau pake internet yang satu lagi malah ngerebut komputernya.
Aku dan Sausan bosan duduk di atas kasurnya, adiknya Dito juga duduk di kasur. Tiba-tiba terasa kasurnya bergerak pelan, Sausan pun marah dan berkata kepada adiknya agar berhenti lompat-lompat. Adikna hanya menjawab polos bahawa dia tidak lompat dia atas kasur. Ayah Sausan masuk ke kamar Sausan dan berteriak ke kita berdua, "GEMPA! Cepat berlindung di bawah meja makan!!!!".
Spontan karena kita berdua orang Indonesia kita malah panik, bukannya tenang (Ini membuktikan bahwa latihan gempa tidak mempengaruhi kita). Kita langsung berlari ke bawah meja makan yang sudah ada kakaknya Sausan dan teman-temannya, Dito (adiknya), dan kita berdua. Di atas meja masih ada barang-barang dapur seperti gelas, piring, DLL. Tapi, di mana ayahnya Sausan???
Ternyata ini sangat mengejutkan, ayahnya memeluk TV layar lebar di ruang tamu yang berhadapan dengan tempat kami berlindung, padahal diatas TV tersebut terdapat rak! Sausan berteriak kepada ayahnya, "Bapak nggak apa-apa?". Ayahnya menjawab, "Tidak apa-apa". Jujur sebenarnya aku kebingungan kenapa ayahnya malah melindungi TV bukan anak-anaknya? Atau paling tidak ikut berlindung!
Gempa berhenti beberapa saat, tapi kita semua tahu kalau gempa akan datang lagi. Ayahnya Sausan berteriak menyuruh semanya keluar, kita semua buru-buru keluar tidak peduli memakai sepatu siapa. Kita semua berlari keluar lalu disusul ayahnya Sausan. Lalu kita melihat dari balkoni, kita lebih tenang ayah Sausan menelpon ibunya Sausan. Aku tidak berhenti cemas karena aku tidak bisa pulang dan karena dulu rumahku 12 stasiun dari Meguro. Sementara teman kakaknya Sausan tetap bicara tentang berapa bangunan yang akan roboh. Sausan menjawab, "Mana mungkin roboh, roboh mah tren di Indonesia!".
Setelah ayah Sausan selesai menelpon, kita semua merasakan gedungnya berguncang lagi kali ini lebih kuat. Ayah Sausan memerintahkan kita untuk segera turun ke lantai 1. Kita berlari turun dari tangga sambil berdoa, tidak ada yang jatuh. Sampai di bawah gempa berhenti lagi. Kita dibawah sana menunggu dengan takut, Dito menangis hampir setiap menit terasa gempa kecil. Kita dibawah sekitar 30 menit, Sausan bilang bahwa ia khawatir akan Midori karena dia sendiri di rumahnya bersama kakaknya.
Jadi 2 teman kakaknya Sausan pergi ke rumah Midori yang tidak terlalu jauh untuk menjemput Midori dan kakaknya. Karena di sini ada ayahnya Sausan. Ketika Midori sampai kita langsung kembali ke kamar Sausan, sulit dipercaya kita dibawah sana sekitar 45 menit. Di atas kita semua menonton berita, melihat bahwa ada tsunami di dekat Tokyo.
Malam itu, orangtua Midori datang menjemput, Lukman datang ke rumah Sausan lalu kita usir, teman-teman kakaknya Sausan pulang, dan Yamashita san (pengurus administrasi) menelpon semua murid dan menyambungkan semuanya ke orangtuanya. Semua HP tidak bisa digunakan untuk telpon, pilihannya hanya internet, atau telpon rumah.
Sementara ibuku tidak mempunyai telpon rumah, aku coba hubingi ibuku dari internet. 2 jam kemudian ada balasan di email ku ibu bilang aku harus menginap di rumah Sausan dan esok paginya ibuku akan datang menjemput.

Go Green is IMPORTANT!!!

Let's go green! If you still doesn't know what will go green effect to our future, you're really need to read this!

As you know global warming is happening right now. Global warming came from our self, that's why we're the one who must responsible for all of these.
Global Warming exist largely because of the pollution, and more more tree getting cut off which make the Carbon dioxide can't change to Oxygen
Global warming makes the earth became hotter and hotter. And because of that, the seasons are a little bit shifted and the ices in the both Poles is now melting a LOT!!

Global warming doesn't only effect to us but also to the habitats!
Most of the habitats that got effected by global warming is Polar bear and followed by the penguin!
Why? Because they live in North Pole, and they're nature is with ice.. ALL of the ice in North Pole.
And that make me sad, because now global warming effected they're home by melting all of the ices in North and South Pole.
Can you imagine that your lovely house is disappear? You'll be really sad right? And that's how they feel now.
If this keep on going until future, they'll maybe extinct. So we don't have anymore bears in the North Pole nor the South.
Even thought I'm also a little bit sad imagining Santa lives in North Pole with all of the melting ices.

What is nuclear? Nuclear is an energy to make electricity, actually nuclear is good because they provide bigger electricity and save more money.
But, there's 2 main bad things about nuclear.
First, is that nuclear is really dangerous if its explode!
Do you ever heard of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki (Japan)?
America has bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki with an atomic nuclear bomb.
And it was really big in a shape of a mushroom, and making everyone injured. Even the one who is 70 km away.
Secondly, the nuclear power plant bring a lot of carbon dioxide
As you can see from the picture, the nuclear power plant brings a lot of carbon dioxide.
Like for example the Fukushima (福島) nuclear power plant is leaking, but the government said that is THAT not dangerous.
That can make the earth hotter, and the pollution also make us sick.
So please wish me luck being here at Tokyo!

Reuse, Reduce, Recycle!
Because now your an expert about global warming, let's make CHANGES!!!
You must heard of this a lot of times! Lots of people doing this because this is the most common support for the earth to stay green. Read this post to know what all of that mean :)
❀ Reuse
Reuse means that you use something again for a several times rather than just trow it away. Something common to reuse is a plastic bag. If you get a plastic bag by buying something at the store, you can use that plastic bag for the garbage. Or bring it when you're buying something at the store, so you won't get another plastic bag. Plastic bag its hard to unravel, it may take 10 years to unravel!
❀ Reduce
Reduce means you make a smaller or less amount of something, but in this topic reduce mean make a smaller or less amount in plastic and other things that's hard to unravel. By reusing item that's mean you already help reducing plastic, like use the plastic bag again and again. That's make the plastic bag reduce!
Recycle means waste or something that we don't use anymore we turn it into a usable material. Recycle is the most famous support to make the earth stay green. For example, you have this empty plastic bottle from your groceries rather than putting it in the garbage you should actually recycle it! Recycle it by washing it first so it's become clean, and then you could paint it white so you could paint it in another color. Decorate it! And put some stickers (if you want). Now, it's officially your new recycled stationary holder! That's the example for recycling.

It's YOUR turn to make the earth more green! These are not the only thing you can do to support the earth becoming green. So think green and be creative!
