Hibernation [walk Into The Sun] - Poem by Anup Shetty

We are all buried under the earth
Safe from the chill in the air high above
but we seem to have lost track somehow
We are trapped in this blinding darkness
Hunger has turned our brothers cannibals
We are waiting for spring to come
Waiting for the rains to wash our tears
How long must we wait?
How much more should we hibernate?
When will we walk into the sun?

Time runs motionless in our grave,
Changes have already sent us round the bend
Our struggle for survival seems never to end
Our brothers killed by their own greed
Noiseless we hope to remain protected
Our entire future waiting for the light
Our hopes are departing with every breath
How long must we stay?
Where does the escape lay?
Will we ever walk into the sun?
