more than earthly dreams

why is it that the poor of the poor
suffer in the heat for days and days
only to be crushed
with their dreams?

why is it that the simple and innocent
go on with their daily work and study
only to be buried
with their dreams?

i cannot imagine it is to punish
the victims of such calamities
severe and unexpected
man-made or by mother nature.

i imagine it is to enlighten
those who are left behind
to respond as they should
to act, to help, and to pray.

i imagine it is his way to save
the victims, his beloved children
from their earthly gods and suffering
to grant them much more than their dreams.
