When Mother Nature is enraged,
there is no stopping her from lashing out at those around her.
The Earth is bleeding,
from the mass destruction where homes were wrecked and thousands of lives lost.
For those who survived,
they still have to live in the nightmare of losing their loved ones.
The world is weeping,
for those who didn’t have a chance to run for their lives when calamity struck.
The old, the sick and the little ones
were buried or swept away before they could even cry out for help.
Yet amidst the chaos and suffering,
we saw heroic acts of rescue and extended hands of aid from all over the world.
Despite the mass destruction Mother Nature has brought upon,
the world is hoping
for a little mercy, a glimmer of hope in this whole tragedy.
That those who went through this trial of fire
would stand stronger, fight harder to overcome their loss and rebuild their lives.
May we not be indifferent to the pain and suffering of others around us
May we not take life for granted when some amongst us are struggling to live
And may we have a little compassion and love for those who are suffering now,
starting with a little prayer, and learning to count our blessings every day…
