Japan Tsunami And Earthquake 2011- A Tribute

The fury of Mother Earth.,
Devastating the planets precious lands
Succumbing to the devilish waves of sea
Where will the man go in calmness?

As the earth below our feet shake
Can there be shaking to our Faiths
That Nature wins over Man always
No matter how much intelligence he gains

Mankind in its quest to conquer lands
And protect against those uncivilized perpetrators
Build up science and nuclear plants
But who can save them from the nature's call

Was the nuclear plants helpful when Nations shook
And was there any predictions of them in the books
Was the man's science greater than god's creation
And will there be a day where we can run away from such devastation!

A nation called Japan struggles to live after shocks
The world looks at them in fear of the future
A world that is so uncertain how to handle the
Volcanic eruptions and the seismic motions

We clone lives, and build satellites,
Run behind borders and expansion plans
Fight with Nations in sharing every bit of this planet
Exploiting it forgetting that there is nothing at the end…

Nations and its leaders crave for materialistic wellness
Capturing and exploiting every one down trodden
Moral values go only good in the books
And human values devoid at every corner…

How much big or small you are as a person
Rich or poor, which ever race or religion
Creed or caste, nation or language.,
You are all the same in the Nature's view

People who understand these things few
Will feel elated and praise for the blessings we have
Stop worrying for the wealth's that we don't make
Or the rules and laws we make and break

The Japanese showed a unique sense of solidarity
They did not loot or steal the fellow people and stood together
Have worked to rebuild lives after the first atomic bombs
And they would recover from this catastrophe too

The Nation called Japan, in all its preparedness
To handle the known and unknown chaos
Have shown the world the calmness that engulfs
After the tsunamis and storms that tore life's apart

Only wish, we extend our thoughts and prayers
Stand by their hope, strength, faith and recovery
Learn not to exploit the natural beauty of this world
And learn to live with the a Global Harmony!

We all know, the end is uncertain,
Be it for individuals or for a Nation together
Either that be man- made or Natural Fury
So there is a need to live in Peace and Global Eternity!
