Chile (Under Ruins)



Rumbling sound
Earth in upheaval
Trembling hearts

Utter chaos
Roar of devastation
Utter destruction

Flood of waters
Drenched in sorrow
Flood of tears

Where to run?
Amidst the ruins
Where to go?

Lifeless town
Death on his chariot
Lifeless corpses

Lost lives
Never to return
Lost dreams

Prayers for the souls
Give them rest
Prayers for the living

Give hope
Grace upon them
Give relief

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.

Thank you Aayushi, This is the least I can do to show my concern for the victims of one of the most devastating earthquakes in history.

Through poetry we can inspire others, we can make someone smile and words can make others cry be it of joy or sadness.
