Few Care, And That's Not Enough

" We are a society that only cares about the hungry when they are voters and only cares about the naked when they are women."
~Ahmed Negm

We all, call ourselves a society, don’t care much
Contemn change, adore status quo in all its entirety
Feeble feeling ‘care’ is, not an overwhelming one as such
So easily buried, forgotten, easily observed but ignored
We grieve, can do anything for rejoice and reprieve
Only for ones we know and love, or being loved.

Indifference is well fed to us, we ain’t neutral by chance
When have our eyes reflected back the reality in entirety?
It does when something gross or gruesome dances
Rest all to be seen is left for somewhile perchances
We live in an unseen bubble where all’s fine and good
Unaware of all which can render us weltered in glances.

Look for it, where that care, empathic heart has gone?
Lock it when you find it, before it has for forever gone.

Become Like Water

Changes are like water, they drip and drop
In so many shapes and so many forms..

Changes, unnoticed changes
Gradual, not rapid but slow
I never really knew
When and how they seeped
Deep In to my skin
Methinks, I see mirror everyday
Hardly any change
Reflects back in my eyes
But I'm changed
In more ways than I can say
When it happened?

Many times walls in my room
Painted, repainted
Skyscrapers looming around my space
Built from nothing
Mighty tree next door dropped
Heaps of leaves
I've never seen them die out
Always on time
Unheeded, they come and go
When it all happens?
I guess I fail to notice

I wish to become like water
When changes being darted
Along my way
What's in it to notice?
To get it over with
 Swiftly adapt.

You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can drip and it can crash. Become like water my friend.
