A Glass Of Water

Give me a glass of water
To drink in this summer.
Give me a glass of water,
I have nothing to drink,
The area is full of water, though.

Give me a bowl of rice
Or a bread to eat,
I want nothing more than this.

Give me a bowl of rice
To eat, on this day.
On this day, I am hungry.
I am being eaten by
My hunger, my thirst,
That are within me.
