Utter selfishness,
driven by greed for
personal comfort
and disregard for
suffering of people
all over the world
has brought shame
to this family of
Earth Creatures.
So clever in killing
and so inefficient
in saving lives in
natural disasters
like Katrina and
Rita in the USA.

We write poems
on our love and
problems of love
and other relations.
So petty compared
to the death and
destructions and
suffering of
The victims of
such disasters either
natural or manmade.

We need to be more
caring to our own
family members -
The earth creatures;
great and small.

Over a week after Tropical Storm Harvey first inundated Texas, death tolls have risen and hundreds are still missing, as displaced victims start making their way back home and others are told to evacuate.

Evacuations for about 4,600 houses in western Houston started at 7 a.m. Sunday following an evacuation order by Mayor Sylvester Turner. Hundreds of people in the area still have not left their homes and flooding is expected to last another two weeks.

Harvey's death toll rose again to at least 50, authorities said, with the addition of an 8-year-old who died after he couldn't get his asthma treatment during an attack and a man who was found floating in Cypress Creek floodwaters. His death brings the total in Harris County, which includes Houston, to 29.

Houston police and volunteers with the Texas Center for the Missing are fielding hundreds of reports about people separated from their families, with their efforts converging in the George R. Brown Convention Center, where thousands of displaced people are staying, the Houston Chronicle reported.
