What I need?

Posted: August 17, 2010 in Uncategorized

I can see,
I can talk and
I can walk.

My eyes were dried of crying,
My hands were maimed with lack of energy.
We drink our blood inspite of drinking water.
We eat our flesh despite of food.

I can feel it and
I can see it.

I touched your legs,
I prayed you liked a god and
I begged you for a penny.
My heart was stinging,
my stomach was squeezing.

I can feel it and
I can sense it.

My eyes were closing,
My body was petrified.
It was going to stop.
I can feel the coldness that swobbed me and,
I can sense the death.

God, help us, atleast with the worst.

I don’t need a house,
but what I need was shelter for my body in rain.
I don’t need the delicious dishes,
but I need food to stay alive.
I don’t need costly drink,
but I need a cup of water.

I am just 4 years old,
Help me god, and save me.

I don’t want the gloam with lightening flickers,
but I want the flinders of light to lighten up the gloam.
