Immense tragedies have rocked the world
Serving disasters, that so noisily unfurled
How can man know what destiny doles out?
How can he save himself and the whole crowd?
Can he escape from the littlest of dooms?
Where can he go, to which of the world’s rooms?
How can make out how with anger He shakes?
How can he pacify the Earth’s rumbling quakes?
Thousands of people eaten up by Earth’s core
Leaving their families, heartbroken and sore
There is nowhere you can go to escape the death penalty
Other than having the hope of fleeing the monstrous calamity
Tears and hiccoughs that accentuate the thousands of faces
Sympathies and empathies that run through the world’s races
They can now be found aplenty, on thousands of faces and hearts
But you can never know how the tragedy actually starts
Rocking the nation that houses the mighty mountains
The Earth takes no pity, be it common men or chieftains
But as the world watches with shocked faces, the mountains’ thunderous fall
They echo in unison, “We are with you Nepal!”
