Sanjeev Kumar (Jamshedpur, India)
I Want To Live
I have been violated with no permission of mine,
I have been assaulted for no fault of mine,
The brutality committed shakes the soul of mine;
But still brother, I do not want to die.
Bless me mother, I want to live.
I have been outraged with the sleeping law,
I have been hammered for absent order claw,
The viciousness stanched vibrates the soil plow;
But still father, I wish I would not die.
Bless me mama, I want to live.
I am yet to see the nature's beauty,
I am yet to hear the bird's chirp,
I am yet to dance in the fall of the rain,
I am yet to feel the shine of the sun,
I am yet to understand the meaning of life.
But doctors, I wish would not let me die,
Mother, I desperately want to live.
