We Never Accept Defeat

Killer rain
Unending downpour
Sky torn beyond
Unleashing fury of hell
None could ever tell,
Gushing flood
Anger or retaliation?

Neck deep water all around,
No single
Patch of dry ground.
No ray of sunshine
None slept safe for

Nature powerful, might and strong
Roared like angered
Pounding all that came along,
Spared none, disturbed each and
Every one.

Rains be will gone,
Sun will shine all along,
Back on our feet
We never accept defeat.

The damage done by the rains in Bombay is immeasurable. This is something I wrote - what I felt when I saw it on the TV and read in the papers.
