Syeda Beenish Jalil

(9 October 1988 / Rawalpindi, Pakistan)

the mighty nature


over the centuries man has tried
to conquer nature and slave its might

he built concrete high rising homes
ships that fight sea's heavy storms

planes to fly man in air
cars, trains... travel's no fear

he tried to tame the nature wild
protect himself when she got riled

he built structures tall nad wide
wo enclose seas and her tide

he got better, he got strong
he felt he can do no wrong

with all knowledge, all strength
new gadgets, tools and wealth

but when the nature shows her might
man can hardly put up a fught

the roaring, foaming, angry sea
or mighty winds that blow away trees

earthquakes that shake the ground
or molten lava, burns all around

for all its worth, all man's trouble
on nature's strike turns to rubble

after all the heights man had reached
nature's surrender cannot be achieved

even after centuries of fight
man has to salute the nature's might
