Tsunami - Poem by Shila Sinha

What a dreadful catastrophe
Took away the last breadth of thousands
Without giving a single moment
In a second, world is changed
Dilapidated and collapsed so is she
The devastating disaster left her with no choice
But to be homeless, crippled and vulnerable,
Merely an orphan in this big planet
Now she won, t be lying in her mother's lap
Nor her father will be there to pat her
Her siblings won't be around her to chase
Humanity is bereaved of Almighty 's bliss
She is all alone in this
Naked unclad world.
Deprived of a beautiful childhood
Victimized in profanity
Bereft of affectionate shelter
Unshielded in crisis
Dangling in a dilemma to live or to die
Enigma has engulfed her
The world around her has collapsed in no time
Not a single mortal soul to attend her relentless cry
Solitude has engrossed her with frightful thoughts
Though our civilization is at its peak
Android has tamed the resources of nature
But lost its glory to the whims of nature.
Catastrophe has tarnished the pride of techno civilization.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The recent catastrophe took place in Uttaranghand, took the life of thousands. We the humanity lost its glory in front of nature, though we boast of our so called techno pride civilization.
