Unknown And Unforeseen- - - Allegory. - Poem by Meena Somasundaram

Likening to a thunder
came down a boulder
fell down with a noise
made things look like toys
men working ran away
apprehensive of the fall in a way
luckily none were too near
could save their life dear
the mishap caused a furore
the neighbours raised an uproar
nothing could have been done
as the prevention was all done
certain happenings could not be predicted
reasons could never be attributed
the case could be felt in life too
unknown and unforeseen take place true.

    certain happenings could not be predicted
    reasons could never be attributed
    the case could be felt in life too
    unknown and unforeseen take place true.

    unpredictable things happen which have the power to change the course of life. very thought provoking poem.
    sometimes we have this feeling that nothing is in our hands.. thank you. tony
