The Truth

Source

The truthfulness of the poverty


A person,

half naked,

returning,

from his fields,

hardly bearing,

the unbearable fire,

of the sun rays,

his lips,

so dry, like,

a cracked field,

for want of water.






Source

The person,

returning,

in the mid-day,

his scattered hairs,

like unwanted,

and useless,

thorny bushes,

unevenly grown up,

in that cracked fields.




Source

That person,

sweating,

his entire power,

his body,

so thin,

like dirty,

cotton cloths,

smelling so bad,

wet in his sweat.




Source

The person,

being exploited,

now, his land,

is no more,

in his ownership,

working,

for his children,

to see them alive,

the question,

of their education,

is impossible,

to be raised.




Source

The person,

who grows up,

the grains,

to feed up,

the people, like us,

who are the rich,

as compared to him,

and his poverty,

who is working hard,

in the fields,

and remains hungry,

along with,

his children,

at least once,

in a day.




Source

That person,

is called,

"the farmer",

a decaying species,

of humanity,

will be no longer,

in future,

if all these,

remaining same.

This farmer,

fights,

a battle with life,

for the cause,

of the survival,

of his own,

and his family also,

especially,

for his children,

who don't want,

to carry on,

the job of cultivation,

further, in future,

for his children,

because,

of negligence,

to which, they are,

continuously watching,

in the shape of their father,

every moment and,

everyday,

the decaying culture,

of the cultivator.

fighting from hunger.

As an English teacher, I have to say that this has the potential to be an incredible poem! I think your first line doesn't add to the poem, but the rest is wonderful.

AUPADHYAY,

You have very correctly portrayed the true condition of Indian farmer. Unaffected by green revolution he carries on negative returns, growing poverty. You have captured his condition well. Voted up!

Lots of Love,

MAKUSR
