Paul Sebastian


Such plague as this earth has never seen!
Yet, in this rocket-science age man failed
To contain with a discovered vaccine
To stop the disease that has claimed

Not less than four thousand lives
Another four thousand waiting
To be claimed by their graves
Snuffs out lives, none respecting

Mothers scream as children wait to die
Children call their dying mothers in vain
Forcefully taken away; terrorized cries
A community wailing in deep pain

Some vaccine-treated cured
Return to their homes
Only to be ostracized
By own loved ones!

Nations must raise their concern
Fund-support WHO to contain the epidemic
Fast spreading like man has never known
A warning, unheeded could be apocalyptic!

Man must fervently storm heaven
Plead with God for His mercy
To save and heal the stricken
For His greatness all to see!

    A warning, unheeded could be apocalyptic!

    It is so very unfortunate that a new strain of dreaded disease which is so lethal and alarmingly contagious is taking a toll of thousands of lives in the regions of Africa, especially in places like Guinea and Liberia! So far no effective vaccine has been found out! Let us hope that these helpless people will be saved at the earliest from the clutches of this malady! The believers can pray for a divine intervention! If it is not prevented in time, it can be apocalyptic! A great write! (Report) Reply
