One Life. Let Us Live! - Poem by Veeraiyah Subbulakshmi

Average calorie consumption per day,
Just water, vegetable and carbohydrate,
Less than thousand calories, not to send,
Contestants for the world beauty pageant,
My countrymen as skeletal as bulimics,
Most of them mineral deficient and anemic,
Not muscular dystrophy, simply no muscle,
No breast reduction, underdeveloped glands,
The cleverest brains, fail to think and analyze,
Exported ones awake to compete always,
Insufficiency is the way of life and,
God given gift, the karma for past birth,
Who make us fools to suppress our desires,
Of having three descent meals and shelter,
Whenever look at the lesser privileged,
The last privileged feel not least privileged,
But feel better privileged and energized,
Continue the journey of karmic philosophy.
