THE LOSS OF THE TEMPEST BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL


THE LOSS OF THE TEMPEST

 

Not only a gust of wind but a hurricane,

Without mercy lashed on the landline

Lifts the trees, nipas, bamboos in rows

Threw tantrums like a child on show!

 

The strongest cyclone in the east and west,

Typhoon Yolanda in the international scene

But for the Visayas, named Typhoon Haiyan

Chaos all around, debris and dead on land.

 

Caught the world by surprise, what a tempest!

Never in history such a speed so fierce not blest,

The Pearl of the Orient Seas, dame of the East

Some islands devastated in unseen conquest...

 

The superpowers rushed to aid the central pearl,

What a generous spirit, never forgotten for real

Ships come and go, jets brushed to and fro---

The West led as a good Samaritan, so humane!

 

We will arise again, says the Filipinos again,

Their resilience unequaled in all domain

The tempest did not win for there is a victor!

Our God who never abandon His people...
