AN (27-03-1985 / MUMBAI)

A Journey Through Hell...

A warrior's cry erupts
The quarry is sighted from afar
Each breath held in avid anticipation
As each soldier readies for war.

Forward goes the surging swell
Of humanity, maddened in its rush.
The train arrives, awaiting the crush
Of an early morning hell

Each person gasps, held in a vice
A stranglehold, endured each day
A slip away from death, he holds on
Limbs askew, he rolls with the sway

This sea of humanity, unforgiving, whole
Shepherded towards a common goal
Returns again, to endure in pain,
A journey in tommorrow's train.
