For the past week I have successfully steer clear of the internet to avoid seeing heart breaking scenes from different parts of the Philippines that has been devastated by Typhoon Haiyan or Typhoon “Yolanda” (Philippine Name). Unfortunately, watching TV is hard to elude as it is part of my daily routine to check if there are suspension of Classes.
It really breaks my heart and brings tears to my eyes every time I get a glimpse of the videos, news flash and photos taken from Tacloban, Samar and other areas hardly hit by the Typhoon. All I can do is wish that help gets there fast enough specially for the children, the sick and the wounded and a decent burial for the dead.
If only I have wings to fly,
I’d soar up high.
And travel as fast as I can
To bring food on your table, water to drink and cure for your sickness.
If only I have the strength to carry heavy loads,
I’ll clear the paths for you
And build bridges and houses too.
If only I can convert my tears into electricity,
So I can give light on your dark nights
And illuminate the streets and airports
So help can get through faster.
All I can do,
Is pray for everybody
To have the strength to carry on all the efforts to help.
And for the victims
To have the courage, patience and hope
It may take a while,
But everything will be OK soon…
And please Lord,
Give our Leaders the heart to exert extra effort and act quicker than quick
to assist and aid our countrymen through this crisis.
