170×170 day 20 20.5.15

A home is built with so much care,

So much planning, hearts full of dreams

Chalk the plan together for a future together

Brick by brick the foundation is laid,

Walls come up to keep turbulence out

A roof to shelter from rain and thunder,

Colours of love and joy paint the walls,

Everything is done with wholehearted care

Hoping to build a home that will last forever

Where generations will be born and live.

But when it is brought down

It takes no time at all, powerful forces

Caring  not the least about consequences

Hit from all side, till everything comes down

Then the rubble is scooped up and disposed with,

Like it was nothing at all, never.

With them go away the dreams, memories

That were once there.

Maybe a new home will replace the old one,

New lives will breathe under a new roof,

Or some lifeless mall, plaza will pop up,

Stars only know what is in time’s mind,

Spectators can only wait and see results.
