The first second was bright and sunny

The next with storm and thunder.

We dream to harness the weather

For when the clock strikes at that exact second

We need to have the right stakes in hand.

The lesson we have learned through foolish failures -

The harder we struggle to control, the easier we fail.


We stare at the realms with the perfect climate in awe

Yet nothing can be done to the ongoing calamities.

We decide to ignore them, believing

That they won’t hurt us, yet we neglect the fact

Our neighbors are wounded deeply inside.

Till that day when all the neighbors move away

From this walking time bomb named ourselves

We eventually realize

This tempest runs wild without a harness.


Befuddled, scared, anxious

Feeling completely desperate towards nature

Finally realizing it’s the calamity controlling us

Never the other way around.

Martyrs fight, and more become martyrs.

After countless tries

It dawns upon us

We are never supposed to drive the tempest away

Never a live or die

We are supposed to live in harmony with it.
