    Celestial Fury

    The sky is turning dark before sunset. A roaring
    Thunderstorm expresses its outrage and dismay
    At the way the world is going. Each thud is a
    Loud protest against an overwhelming problem.

    Boom! For every innocent death!
    Boom! For every hungry child!
    Boom! For every injustice, every crime, every
    Exploitation! Boom! For every senseless kidnapping!

    Boom! Boom! For every desperate human being
    Facing a hopeless future with a heart full of sadness!
    Boom! Boom! For every person deprived of human
    Rights: freedom, hope, and the right to express an
    Opinion! Boom! Boom! For every drunken and drugged
    Being, choosing to isolate himself from the chance
    Of living fully! Boom! Boom! For every tear, every
    Grief, every suffering!

    Boom! Boom! Boom! For every
    Feeling of guilt, for not doing enough for others,
    For not being thankful for all the blessings received!
    Boom! Boom! Boom! For every time I think “I” and “me”
    Instead of “we” and “us”! Forgetting the rest of humanity…
