The French Alps Disaster 26th March 2015 by/Tony Gorman

Was there a reason why?
A plane could lose its course
On a mountain range with peaks of snow
So rugged and so coarse

One hundred and fifty lives
Lost upon a flight
All planning things to say
When arriving home that night

A mechanical failure of the worse
Falling from the sky above
As no one had the time to say
Goodbye to the ones they love

As sadness fills the hearts
Of their family and their friends
All traumatized by what’s happened
Of how all those lives could end

But reasons never justify
Or ease the hurtful pain
Or bring their loved ones back again
All excuses are in vain

Was it too much stress from flying?
Did the co-pilot make it stall?
Was there pressure in the cabin?
That caused the jet to fall?

All questions that can’t be answered
By the black box tape they found
Or the investigators reasoning’s
From the debris on the ground

But the world looks on in sympathy
And the prayers be said for all
As their flight took a new direction
Towards heaven at Gods call

    The Nepal Earthquake 27th April 2015 by/Tony Gorman

    Frightening as the earth rocked beneath their very feet
    As terror shook the buildings where so many people meet
    Tumbling crumbling bricks and mortar in a most horrific way
    Uprooting foundations by its force beneath its rock and clay

    It was nature’s worse disaster in Nepal for many years
    Kathmandu reduced to rubble and its people shedding tears
    With the death toll reaching thousands and the injured in a daze
    And the clouds of dust ascending reducing visibility to a haze

    And the snowy peaks of Everest, rocked upon its very base
    Brought avalanches down the mountain’s by the tremor’s rocking pace
    And the climbers in their base camp took the force upon that day
    As seventeen they perished as the mountain took its prey

    We are in awe by the vengeful force’s that nature shows mankind
    To remind us of a greater power and magnitude of a kind
    For this earth has given us sanctity allowing us all its use
    And in return we war and fight, causing its very core abuse

    And now and then it show’s its force to make us all aware
    That we are just its residents and the earth is here to share
    And those innocents of Nepal are the martyrs of today
    For the way we abuse nature by mankind’s hateful warring way

    For the bombs and oil and plutonium are profits of the earth
    Which mankind has extracted for their greed since the time of birth
    And the weakened inner core shakes earth’s axis off its track
    And the damage created in our time is like an everlasting crack

    As the buffers that stabilised the earth are being removed
    With nothing to replace them leaving just an inner groove
    And the voids in time collapse causing earthquakes by their fall
    And its innocent countries that take the brunt like this one that hit Nepal

    We feel part of their bereavement to their injured and their dead
    As this could be us in a future time after all is done and said
    For we stand upon the threshold of a world reduced to tears
    And the greater powers of nature are our monumental fears

    For mankind in time will destroy himself by his shameful want and greed
    And tsunamis and earthquakes will be the answer to offset Mother Nature’s need
    And hopefully one day soon our leaders will open up their eyes
    And stop upsetting nature to avert our earth’s demise

    We must all try to help these poor people of Nepal in any way we can whether it be donating to the disaster appeal fund or in our prayers.
