How can an earthly gift become a curse?
To have a land to walk on and ocean to swim in
Yet subjugated with the privilege
Stuffed to the throat and unable to breathe in
The world has lost its colours
How can a free gift become a calamity?
With the quaking of the earth people will walk on sky
Even the ocean has lost its comfort
Running after terrified soul and eating them up
Mother earth has abruptly become inimically friendly.
How can the earthly gift cause crisis?
Causing pains to people amidst their fight to save their lives
Amidst the turbulent tsunami their voices rose in cries
With no where to run to, they fought with all hopes lost mother earth has become a dwelling of anguish.
How can the ocean dwell in an abode with a soul?
Driving one out of his domicile with a peculiar snarl
Playing with life as if it were a tombola
Choosing who to squeeze life out of on its own time
Earth has lost its ambiance.
Where is the comfort mother earth promises?
Since even the ground provides no shelter
Claiming thousands of helpless souls in the torrent
With the rising wails the ocean continues to be shrewish
Giving no room to a last prayer, it attacks with a prowess prowl.
