Super Typhoon Haiyan


Super typhoon Haiyan,
Why have you swept away our city Tacloban?
Why have you killed thousands of our countrymen
Including the innocent children and women?

Look what you have done!
Complete devastation with no food and water,
You have taken them one by one.
Why did you need to slaughter them?

Why do you have to show the world you're the deadliest?
Why do you have come and brought us many tears?
Don't you know we're born as warriors without fears.

You have destroyed all our towns and cities,
You have exposed our fight against irregularities,  
And now we have nothing left,
But only allies who've helped us their very best.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
