A sudden tremor with a mighty shake
Millions of lives does it take
Houses broken and trees shaken
Mighty hills all prone to cracken.
Peace stolen by cracks so deep
A twist it brings in life so steep
A crisis so terrible for all
The nation has a mighty fall.
Children so credulous and meek
The old become so lowly weak
Not a sole naïve is left to see
What the earth has got to be.
Buried deep within the broken crust
Of the earth whose you have broken trust
O regret thee! For you have done
A sin for which there is repentance none.
Showers of wrath bestowed by the Lord
Repression, for you have broken the cord
Of bonds with Mother Nature
Whom you never seemed to nurture.
Your life is swollen with despair
For oft the quake does not spare
A brute so sinful and rude
Whom he never does seem to elude.
All and sundry die of starvation
All but those to whom salvation
Touches and stirs at great depths
And those who are divine at great lengths.
O pray thee to the Almighty
To return to you your old gaiety
Separated from all apathy
And bless you with his whole empathy!
Left forlorn amidst shattered pieces
The earth too comes and teases
You about your soulful cries
And your lake of tears never dries!
