Earthquake

4 Comments

On April 25, 2015 deadly earthquake with a magnitude of 7.8 devastated Kathmandu and other parts of Nepal. More than 8,800 people died and injured 23,000.  Hundreds of thousands of people  homeless with entire villages flattened, across many districts of the country.

I would like to dedicate this poem to those who died, injured and survive the earthquake.

April 25th 2015

The day everything changed

Loved one died

Buildings collapsed , temples crumbled

Only the rubble remained

 

Within a minute

Beautiful  Kathmandu valley

Turned into rubble

Creating much trouble

 

Tears , havoc,  chaos and screams

Earthquake shattered  Nepalese dream

Lives  altered , left in devastation

Natural disaster affecting a nation

 

I

Make love with husband

Breast feed  child

Hug parents

Everyone  smiled

 

Play with friends

Fight with brothers

Laugh with sisters

For the last time

What a fate of mine

 

Within a second

All are buried

I search in a hurried

But bricks are

What I find

After hours dead body lined

 

Earthquake you took away

What you want

Shelters turned to grave

Earthquake insane or brave

 

Give us chance to be normal

Don’t be heinous criminal

Earthquake calm down

Everything  dumped down

Life turned bizarre

With deepest  scar

 

April 25th 2015

People loose,  earthquake won

Despite all this

Life goes on and on

Stand up , crave path , walk miles

so that

Future generations

shine and smile
