His Motherland’s Gift

farmer threshed
chaffs cracked
grains dismantled
his sweat of poverty
dripped-
wet the mud
he dreamt to come out
of a poor’s debris
as his feeble legs shivered
in sweltering heat
he ignored his hut
for moments
so as to escape-
diseased wife
cracked roof
tough walls of debt
his harvest too
reaped losses
all doors shut
so he withdrew
dropped down
attack gave lesser ache
than what his motherland
gifted

This poem outlines the condition of many farmers in India. It is an everyday crisis.
Strong and heartfelt prayers to every farmer who spend their lives to protect every soul from hunger and starvation.

They’re angels in disguise.
