Paradise On Earth Where We Live

Rating: 5.0


And paradise on earth where we live.....

Faded face in rolling drops
swelled eyes in scary look
a piece of cloth on the bare body
and the pit stomach folded with hunger
a hell on earth where we live.....

Deserted we are none to hear
paradise of worms is the water we drink
a faraway dream in having staple food
a hell on earth where we live.....

Over the rat holes built canvas houses
glittering stars stay with us
sometimes moon lit rays passing in
and the sultry rays fry us alive
scales of skin and the pinching cool breeze
drops of rain entering the house
where sleeping snakes never bite
and the creatures of nature kind with us
a hell on earth where we live....

Ruined our hearts we are bodily slaves
voices are curbed and the shameless mouth wide open
for a piece of meal ever to live...
when living world forgotten us
the lost peace of life never again
a hell on earth where we live....

Yet, hard is our will ever die
our hearts alive to see the freedom of colour
a day will come when our flag fly high
and paradise on earth where we live...

(The sufferings of tamilians at Srilanka neither be assessed nor be counted, unfortunate on earth dedicated to them)

A wonderful poem depicting the harsh reality of down trodden people for decades needing urgent relief without fail! Timely utterance may provoke necessary action I believe!
