God's Wrath

God’s Wrath
HIS benevolence knows no boundaries
but incomprehensible is God’s wrath
 thinks not twice while taking away all
forewarning always, never to cross HIS path
but none heeds and who cares
nailed to cross one who dares
“never blame me,” thunders HE
blame the elements
wrecking the havoc
humans invited the wrath
what a pity !
Raping the nature’s generosity.

Note from the poet: Published in an anthology  “Poems From Third World/Feb 2014/Blackbuck Publications”  is posted in view of recent floods in J&K. The poem was actually written after 16th June 2013 soon after the flash floods ravaged Kedarnath, Gaurikund etc. of Uttrakhand (India)

    It will happen to the hills first. Then the earth... in the plains. We have tampered enough

Responsible for miseries to bring The earth was never ungrateful Turning sorrowful remorseful We have blocked river way Water can not find the easy way Birds, forests have disappeared Now the existence is really feared What can your expect more? How can He ignore? Such irresponsible acts “We suffer most” is fact"

    Dear TK, as always wonderful thought provoking poem .........

    you said this poem was written after the devastation at Kedarnath etc but see the tragedy, the poem holds so good for current scenario,
    yes humans have destroyed the beautiful creation of God, instead of passing on a better world to our future generation, we have ruined everything........we are to be blamed for all that is happening and even at this extreme stage we dont learn then from our follies, then even God may not be able to save HIS creation.......
