A Glass Of Water

Poem By Gajanan Mishra

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.

I am being eaten by/My hunger, my thirst....your thirst and hunger for truth is reflected in many of your poems! Truthful expression is the hallmark of your poetry! You are great...you are unique my very dear elder brother! I am proud of you! I love your poetic sojourn in this beautiful world!
A brilliant creation wit capitivatin image at the end. I love this work is lovely n simply briliant
Fine repetition of 'Give me' to open each stanza. How often I think, 'Give me a home-made lemon drink'.
Very good poem. Ending is mind blowing.
I am being eaten by My hunger, my thirst, That are within me. - - very good ending.
