"DUST OF FAITH"

“DUST OF FAITH”
(Call to action on climate change)

Change is inevitable
In human, conception happens
So, life begins, a part of change

One may reach adulthood
Others just died
In his mother’s womb

Change happens so fast
Everywhere, anywhere
The world over

Change affects all living things
Our environment, the weather
And the way we live

Recently, multitude Asians
Are battered with storms
Earthquake, tsunami and the likes

So sudden big change has come
Overhauling one’s life
I am one of the thousands

The savage storm brought forth
Heavy rains, strong winds
Flash floods, landslides, falling trees

Wrecked homes, damaged crops
Drowned humans and animals
Deaths, panics and cries of pains

A phenomenon not seen
A hundred years past
Unlucky, I am still alive

My possession destroyed
My entire family dies
I do not know where to start

I was left with
A distorted body, a ravaged soul
And a dust of faith

A dust of faith
Enough to give me hope
To endure living

A dust of faith
Enough to love myself
To see life in a positive light

A dust of faith
I dearly hold
God you own my life

A dust of faith
Enough to believe
That God will not forsake us

A dust of faith
To believe that God will touch
Men in government, the community

To act now and in unison
To avert disaster
Climate change changes life

Powerful words spoken it seems you got strength from up above to write this peace because it is potent and burns with its touch.
