A Glass Of Water - Poem by Gajanan Mishra

Give me a glass of water
To drink in this summer.
Give me a glass of water,
I have nothing to drink,
The area is full of water, though.

Give me a bowl of rice
Or a bread to eat,
I want nothing more than this.

Give me a bowl of rice
To eat, on this day.
On this day, I am hungry.
I am being eaten by
My hunger, my thirst,
That are within me.

    I am being eaten by
    My hunger, my thirst,
    That are within me..... these are the instincts that men posses. In order to meet hunger we need foods it it should be earned in proper ways. It is a beautiful poem on hunger. Thanks for sharing.

    Hunger is the taste of food,
    Anger is the waste of blood,
    Thirst is need of water. It was fantastic.
