Loss Of Appetite - Poem by ramesh rai

I ponder for a shred of bread
I search in all holy books
from where i may get
a shred of bread
to extinguish fire of my appetite

All accomplish
the truth of my appetite
but none can extinguish
the fire of my appetite
rather increase my appetite

My appetite is an overwhelming fact
that can not be denied
that can not be ignored
for survival of my life
and to keep me alive

A dog patching door to door
yearn a shred of bread honestly
and extinguish the fire of appetite
but the mankind, on cheating wholesome
can not extinguish fire of appetite

I am told, the shred of loaf
can not be purchased
with coins of gold or silver
it yields from days toil
being irrigated with sweat of manhood

I assail to conquer the shred of bread
to extinguish the fire of my appetite
Alas! it is not worthy
to culminate my aspiration
to extinguish fire of my appetite

I see everyone
snatching shred of bread
from one another's mouth
pleading on the right of shred
whose appetite is never to be extinguished
