Ode to yolanda

You are a stranger, 
weaker than our strength, 
we are too proud for our scientific breakthroughs, 
you are softer than a cotton ball, 
more delicate than a tamed sheep, 
as passive as the most beautiful nature, 
we really thought of you about that, 
and we abused you, 
deforested, polluted, and raped your royal environment relentlessly, 
still you managed to accommodate our bulgar display of shameful disrespect, 
no matter what we do, 
you just shed tears to appease our insatiable greed.

But our wickedness is fast spreading like contagious disease, 
giving you so much pain, 
it irked you violently, 
the irritation reached the point beyond your capacity of toleration, 
you gathered strength, 
something has to be done to cure and contain the bacteria of destructiveness that contaminated the humanity.

Time has come, 
you stood up and cried no more, 
the tears in your eyes turned into unthinkable anger, 
unleashing the wrath beyond human imagination, 
the strength of the wind you brought, 
blew us like little match sticks, 
our coconut plantations totally uprooted, 
devastated our homes, 
the havoc that you wrought were more powerful than our nuclear inventions, 
it destroyed our aspirations, 
everything around us turned into a terrifying nightmare, 
even our strongest technological materials turned into pieces of garbages, 
they could not even stand against your prowess, 
the height of the tidal waves you brought, 
swept us into the sea like dusts, 
flattened our communities into primordial dump site, 
you wiped our cities and homes out, 
along with our dreams, 
washed our modern structures out like pieces of torn papers, 
even our scientific inventions could not stop your rage.

Pretending to be weaker, 
who dine and sleep with us, 
actually a mass murderer, 
just looking for the right time to kill us all, 
and leaving thousand of dead souls litter the streets.

you are a respectable teacher, 
the lesson you taught, 
though very painful, 
yet worth learning from it, 
we realize that we are just humans, 
abusive humans whose capacity is nothing compared with the magnitude of your strength, 
and we learn to humble ourselves before you.
