Similar lives

We

The Palestinians without shelter
The Rohingyas suffering from hunger
The Syrians and Yeminis hit by drones
The Chattisgarh tribes affected by diseases …

Have many similarities
With you
Oh! Christ!

We

Do not possess miracles
To protect our millions
From hunger, diseases
Untimely deaths
Unlike you

But

We understand your yearning –
An earnest desire to save depriving
Humanity
From loss of values and sanctity

We

Share the same fate
For daring to protest and agitate …
You suffered crucifixion
We suffer murders and incarceration …

Both victims of injustice!
