The Fate Of Denial - Poem by Aftab Alam

Many people died,
Houses collapsed,
No shelter to be safe,
All were reciting the verses,
The name of their Master
On every bodies tongue;

The half naked man,
Stood shouting,
Face unto high sky,
With raised hands
Only lips were dancing,
As if singing unheard song,

Broken his silence-
Lord you have created me,
You have created whole world,
When I asked for food,
They have beaten me,
Pushed me,
Now all are like me,
Even worst than me,
Am I not thy creature my Master?
They asked my name, my religion,
I just said to them—I am creation of your Lord,
Please save me, save my precious life –
give me food, they denied,
The fate of denial-

The man fainted and died
