WHERE HUNGER IS HUMILIATED BY OPULENCE

UNEQUAL CHILDREN OF EQUAL GODS (II)

Life traded, its living force emasculated
Men in several skins enervated
Existences berated, moments confiscated
Souls in several layers manipulated
In a world,
That is said to be your creation
In a world,
Where every element is said to be your manifestation
But, in a world,
Where the devil grows, threatens destruction
But, in a world,
Where the humanity is shadowed, increasingly mutilated
But, in a world,
Where a man is predator on a man
But, in a world,
Where a soul scavenges on a soul
In a world,
Where a life hunts a life
Where an existence kills an existence
Where an identity buries an identity
Where hunger is humiliated by opulence
Where misery is aggravated by abundance
Where humanity increasingly becomes inhuman
Why they say we all are born equal..
Who are they who say we all are born equal..

WHO ARE THEY WHO SAY WE ARE BORN EQUAL?

UNEQUAL CHILDREN OF EQUAL GODS (I)

Who are they who say,
That,
We all are born equal,
That,
We all are the equal children of the god,
In a world,
Fraught with the layers of class divide
In a world,
Splintered with classes of social strife
In a world,
Humiliated with the masses crucified
Who are they who still say,
That,
We all are born equal,
In a world of growing inequality,
Shackled by class, caste and religion,
Where,
The divide begins at birth
Where,
The inequity continues even after life
Who are they who still say,
That,
We all are the equal children of the god
