Raged and angered ocean
Thundering and thunderous sea,
Noisy wind and restless breeze
Troubled land and besieged souls,
Only God understands.

Weeping voices and wailing victims
Floating houses and sinking homes,
Hopeless people and dying nation
Only God knows.

Animals and beasts that raze
Humans and beings at gaze
Souls and spirits ablaze,
A world in flames
Losing her games
Evil gaining names.
