Poem: Calamities in the World- is time has come?

Updated on October 4, 2016
she feels the pain, double than we do...
she feels the pain, double than we do...
after the typhoon (got this from an email)
after the typhoon (got this from an email)
earthquake from
earthquake from
..death and destruction
..death and destruction

Is time has come?

I ask the plants:

why I’m keep on breathing?

I ask the water:

why I can quench my thirst?

I ask the land below my feet:

why I’m still standing?

I ask the fire:

why my heart continuously gleams?

An echoing voice answered-

it was the gift of life

embedded with love,

we earthlings inherit

from the Creator's sacred hands.

He gave tremendous energy

to our Mother Nature.

Sustaining the life on earth.

She, who dwells with us...

like a mother to her child.

but earthlings greed

carried by the selfish ambition,

they turn to be bad.

Mother Nature cries in blood!

destruction becomes sickness

Earth weakens day by day

now she choose...

To put an iron hand and teach her child-

a lesson that will strike!

Calamities happen like a thief,

rushing when least expected.

Typhoon, erosion, earthquake, fire, plague…

causing the death of hundreds, thousands and even millions!

leaving the agony of billions

Is she happy?

no…no… of course not!

She feels the strong pain

double than we do

but she have to do it…

to make us change for good

and let the stain in our heart,

the cancer in our mind be perished,

never to exist again!

Make it heal from desires,

from blindness and numbness

to make us stand with everyone

for a common goal

to save the earth from the end.

Earthlings prove our worth!

we, who inherit the earth.

from the Creator whom without beginning…and without end!

the source of everlasting power,

the source of everything.

she feels the pain, double than we do..
she feels the pain, double than we do..

Expected or unexpected, world calamities came out of the blue just like a thief and we never thought or imagine how vast the destruction and turmoil they can bring. We just see everything like a forlorn face of the earth always blaming God. Yeah, these are natural phenomenon but ponder it again, we’re looking with blurry eyes, most of the time we are blind to see that a great part of their effects were due to our ruthless treatment with the earthly energy dwelling with us- our Mother Nature...

what percentage do you think is our share to trigger these disasters to happen?

      Thank you very much for your perspective, yes I agree! We can't really tell, so I guess never ever underestimate the people around us, we'll never know. ^_^

      I write a lot (not much here on HP) on the subject of survival. Most survivalists are infatuated with their admittedly fun tools and how much food, water, ammunition, etc. that they've stored. The not so funny thing is most people look down on the people who live in third world countries. The people that live in what we consider abject poverty fishing for their next meal and making baskets from the local plants. But, we as 'civilized' people would not survive long after many of those disasters you talked about. The 'primitives' living today would outlast almost all of us if something truly catastrophic happened. Guess the poor really would inherit the earth. Just another perspective to add to the mix. I enjoyed yours.

      At least natural disasters kill fast and end fast. The pollution in the cities kill people slowly, torturing them will all the health problems before a slow and, probably, painful death.
