Hunger

Hunger

Wrinkles telling the story of age

Time stood still, from the last meal

Tic- toc gives a rhythm to the act

When body's hunger reached the sole of the soul


Swollen limbs as cushion for the bones

The ones which crumbles on every stroke

It's a joke of the cruel in a sadist play

Skeletons bulging in nature's fray


When food is transient and

The hunger is chronic.

The lifeless living leaves a trail of tragic


Not the deed of a moment,

It took years to be told.

When the indifference of us

Stripped the flesh off their bones


Our needs to wants reaching desires

Demand of new in the never ageing bubble

Some still stuck in the old the forgotten past

Where every deal of meal is a blood soaked clot


Waves of ruin, higher every day

Yearning for respite, begging for a single bite

Calling to the lord, the creator of mine

Have mercy on them, just kill them all


Thought is the worst, possibly criminal

Why give more breaths, do the cardinal

For once, show the mercy of all that is god

Have mercy on those the whole world forgot
