O merciless cyclone!

Where are you?

Why did you extinct our hopes?

You evinced your supremacy

Through the trail of devastations

But ultimately you shattered our lives

We are the innocent people who 

Only know working like an ox

And cultivating something for survival

We don't exploit nature,

We never compete for wealth, status

We never pollute the environment for pleasure

But you always ruin our pertinent efforts

Our mere means of sustenance

Why do you show sympathy for the culprits?


We bear the brunt of your wrath

You mingle our tiny dreams with the dust

Everywhere there is lamentation, agony,

Screaming of desperation

Your astounding journey stopped our journey of life

The plight of people has killed the spirit

To restart our expedition to cultivate

If you Know justice

Then compel God to instill hopes 

Among all and erase the bitter memories, nightmarish experiences 

From the broken hearts

Renovate the dilapidated houses

O cyclone! 

Please don't try to ruin our tiny dreams

Because these are the mere avenues 

To ensure our survival.
