Write here: An ode to to the awesome power of Mother Nature, in poetry

A Hong Kong student reflects on the sometimes harsh and unforgiving nature of the world around us

Ode to Her

On the eve of our nineteenth year, the sky cracked, its molten innards sloshing to and fro, its boiling yolk slipped out as our lips cried for home.

“Stand, stand, stand,” said the boy.

“If we are our country and our country is us.”

Then his motherland, quietly agreeing, gently cups him in her hands, and swallows him whole.

If I told you today, over oil of fish and scarf of red, that concrete would bloom a bud of crimson, would it ever compare to the wilt of before?

And upon the ashes of tomorrow, we pledge to see her once again.

I'm here to testify about the great work Dr Tebor did for me. I have been suffering from (HERPES) disease for the past 5 years and had constant pain, especially in my knees. During the first year,I had faith in God that i would be healed someday.This disease started circulating all over my body and i have been taking treatment from my doctor, few weeks ago i came across a testimony of one lady on the internet testifying about a Man called Dr Tebor on how he cured her from Herpes Simplex Virus. And she also gave the email address of this man and advise anybody to contact him for help for any kind of sickness that he would be of help, so I emailed him telling him about my (HERPES Virus) he told me not to worry that i was going to be cured!! Well i never believed it,, well after all the procedures and remedy given to me by this man few weeks later i started experiencing changes all over me as Dr Tebor assured me that i will be cured,after some time i went to my doctor to confirmed if i have be finally healed behold it was TRUE, So friends my advise is if you have such sickness or any other at all you can contact Dr Tebor via email Teborherbalcenter@gmail.com You can also call or whatsApp his telephone number +2348153052125. Thanks once again Dr Tebor or website https://teborherbalcanter.wordpress.com
