I PRAY FOR YOU

It is a machine
We, rolling to end up drawn
Like lotter numbers
As seen and unseen souls jubilate
But a win today
Expires tomorrow
A loss today
Heals tomorrow

II
There is nothing too awful
Some live like vultures
Not that they crave not for belonging-beds
But misfortunes have housed them into vultures
Always hovering for crumbs
I pray for you

III
There are body parts
Being pounded by pain
As they are arrested by ailments
And imprisoned in beds
Waiting to be served hot
On the plates of death
You aren’t alone
I pray for you

III
There are those traped by the traps of others
The pins and blades cutting
Deep into their skins
Flawing their souls
As no eye tries to help
Let alone, a mouth to help in cry
I pray for you

IV
There are those stuck in dilemmas
All paths looking promising
All paths looking deadly
All eyes looking on
Jeers towering the cheers
I pray for you

V
There are those
Caught in the web of loneliness
Haunting fingers penetrating
Their darknesses
As pillows feel the blows of tears and fists
You are not alone
I pray for you

VI
There are those robbed by fate
Like the biblical Job
Without even a robe
You are not alone
I pray for you

VII
There are those on trucks of poverty
Left from the mountains of riches
With no driver
You are not alone
I pray for you

VIII
Oh tsunami sufferers!
From Katrina to whatever
From your horrid goosebumps
To the hurtful punches of reality
I flow with your flood
I pray for you

IX
Every hiding hurts
Biting blasts
Taunting haunts
Scaring scares
From any corner of the world
No matter how obscure
You are not alone
I pray for you
