Treasure Island

Tirupathi Chandrupatla


A World Safe and Sound


Disaster strikes
Lives lost, breaking
The hearts of all those who live.

Inside me
It creates a storm
Tears of compassion flow uninterrupted.

We face
A tsunami, a fallen 'craft
An avalanche, a hurricane, or a blistering fire.

Natural calamities
Take their toll and as if not enough
We seem to add more in the form of war or terror.

We offer prayers
That there be no more disasters
And the whole world'll be at peace.

Hope our prayers
Will be answered soon
And the world'll be a place safe and sound.

    Our prayers won't go in vain.... But we cannot change the course and pattern of Nature! We can of course modify our behaviour to effect positive changes! Enjoyed!

    we are also part and parcel of nature, we are natural, To speak the truth - No natural calamity is there, it is the form of nature in other way, let us bear it. (Report) Reply

So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
