My eyes see nothing but tears Tears of a million suffering souls Souls that are swimming in the pool of poverty Poverty created by a few egocentric individuals
My ears hear nothing but the tone of grievances Grievances blossoming from excessive suffering Suffering because of the alarming levels of idleness Idleness because the lot is controlled by a few
My nose smells nothing but pungent poverty A poverty that has become a national disaster A disaster which has become a national emblem An emblem that the world identifies us with
My mouth has become a floodgate of lamentations Lamentations that blossoms from excessive pain Pain which has become an inseparable part of everyone Everyone has lost hope of seeing a brighter day
The poem delineates the day to day struggles of a country that is facing socio-economic challenges. These challenges are created by the alarming levels of corruption and heartless political struggles. It is based largely on creativity and was written without any country in mind.
