all the trinkets


All the trinkets

That had so much cost

In the blink of an eye -

All was lost…

Millionaires turned to paupers

The poor were even worse hit

Nature extinguished the lights

That at, so much cost, were lit

Turkey and Syria  two of the nations

Suffered the brunt of nature’s wrath

An earthquake devastated the land

So many dead – so many lost…

A lesson we learn from this

Is that tomorrow may surprise

It may snatch away everything

Or it may give a prize-

A child survives in the rubbles

An old man is found too

How did these miracles happen

No one has a clue

So let us learn a lesson

And end enmity and strife

Let us bow our heads

And thank God for our life

And may his mercy help to find

Many more lives to save

And may we learn a lesson

Of how, with mankind, to behave

    • Myth

      You did cite it correctly. .
      Most of the time .. humans do more harm to each other than nature .. It is shame when political elites plan a war, then project every aspect of their decision .. even the number of casualties. . Death toll..!
