Will you help us...??

Excuse me sir, will you please listen to me
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
It wont
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

Lifes so good all seems alright
then why does this voice inside cry out
a fear, a dread
an unneeded hope that history would repeat itself

for if it isnt hope what could that be
a want to destroy all that goes well into dust
a brew bubbling beneath
the mind looking for a release

unchain it the voice screams
but that would destroy all
the peace the love

so why o why
should I hope to destroy
an answer no more
an answer no less

for life is flashing back
is it that I seem to have begun enjoying that
those bruises within which no one could see

A fire within
a decade or more
