We Need Shelter - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

We are turning becoming fanatic and intolerant society
This development has is added new dimension with variety
Who is to be blamed for all lawlessness in present environment?
What type of good words we deserve in our heart at present?

Youth from all over world is committed to bring glory
We sit silent, feel guilty and express sorry
Why are the poor counties subjected to ill treatment?
Who is coming forward to help them at present?

We have become aggressive and less tolerant
In fact we are limiting ourselves to be ignorant
There is nothing as such in life to get irritated
It is human mind that stands totally isolated

What does it take into account?
Is it the overall prosperity and progress that is to be counted?
or the cordial relation and congenial atmosphere with neighbors
It needs to be balanced and given room for equal power

The religious thoughts, high illiteracy rates also matter
The wealth accumulation and job opportunities also shatter hope
It is dangerous to leave such areas in neglected zone
The time should be availed and not allowed to be gone

Such things do prevail with disparity
We re staunch supporter of equality
We can cite number of instances
Where it has helped to bring down number of differences

World needs long respite
It has fought enough despite
Odd circumstances all over
We need shelter, cover and good offers
