A Silent Plea

I cannot harm you
Nor can I help you
I am sleeping silently
With hundred others like me,
Swept away by the sludge
Now buried under the mud,
There are also thousand others
Probably waiting just to join us,
If you call yourself a man
Try to help some if you can,
And for humanity's sake
Please give politics a break,
We saw that all our life
Now give us some respite,
From under the heap of debris
This is our only silent plea.

(In memory of those who lost their lives in Uttarakhand)
