I've been hungry for too long
And all I've wanted is nothing more than to belong
Belong to all those others walking past me
Thier eyes averted
Longing looks untouched
And those who look back pity me but wont respond...
For my hunger doesnt seem real to you
You have seen so many being fooled, so many wronged
I don't blame you sir
Do go on your journey
But try and see if you could help us
We couldn't grow up like you sir
Thats where we went wrong
We haven't had a choice sir
No one ever gave it to us
But now we are trying
Will you help us sir??
Will you just work a little more sir
We won't need your money
Just a morsel of food
Just the satisfaction that this one night
We won't feel that pain so deep within us.
Will you help us maam?
You look really pretty with those beautiful earrings
Each droplet reminds me of amma's tears
For every single time my baby sister cries out of hunger
She doesnt know it yet you know
She will learn
But I wish I could change that
Will you help us...??
(It's not so easy I know...for all those low lives who've made us turn a blind eye to the true sufferers....well all I can say is carry some food in your car whenever you go out...something they can consume directly..something that won't be handed over to all those who make money out of our countries straving future...
...and then there is Akshaya Patra
