Everywhere there is silence.
Silent are the birds, silent are the tress,
silent are the plains, valleys and hills,
silent are the rivers and seas.
A devastating storm is coming
to engulf me within its abdomen.
I’ll be destroyed as a whole,
nothing of me will remain.
How will I save my life?
How will I find a way to get away?
My patience will certainly show me
the light of the day.
