The Anguishing Labourer

The Anguishing Labourer

1 min 386 1 min 386

I had to sleep again with my empty stomach,

You may have never felt the pain as much,

I have faced the ugliest of times,

But has always stayed strong amidst all crimes.


Today, walked for miles in search of bread,

I wish that if I could be dead,

These days are difficult,

And are way more critical.


I yearn to work,

But I cannot search for any and have to lurk.

I wonder how my daughter is,

I know that my love is not in bliss.


I wish to return to my home,

Much better than these aimless roam.

I dunno how long I have to suppress my hunger,

I desire for only bread which can make me a little stronger.


My body aches now,

It is clear that I will die anyhow.

At least take me back when I die,

I promise I will not utter a word not even to say goodbye.
