Mother, you grant us shelter, Warmth, you sustain all life Serene, blissful splendor Overwhelming affection Chaperon, hold us fragile Replenish, all our needs Traces, worth no mention Still blessed with your grace When nothing is expected in return Things, we take for granted Coveting, for everything and more Gratitude, is lost along the way Negligent, doing wrong without damaging intent Even more so, to worry about the chastisement Forgive the loss of thankfulness But re-offending is not tolerable The hand that rocks our cradle Has been overcome by numbness of hurt Rising within is the spirit of revolt A voice that refuses to lie down and take it No matter who brought about this ache Rightly so, is to them punishment due Still no wind of what’s to come We wander on, through dusk and dawn When suddenly darkness falls, Winds blow hard and strike us down Clouds turn dark and then a violent spill But no shade of water spilt, only deep red As death calls on us, we take a final breath And question mother nature if she feels regret “For we - thy children, meant no harm, Guilty of recklessness and ignorance Enlightenment we sought you to provide Enlightened indeed, but to your pitiless splendor Mercy and pardon we cried for but received none And now as you watch, we all die as one All as a lesson you meant, but killing is no moral Suffering for no cause, punishment undue.” Copyright ©2004 Tejas There it is. I trust all of u understood what its about. I first called it "Tsunami" but i thought that made things quite obvious. So changed it. Hope u like it.
