For all


I want food
To nourish my body.

Food, the cause of my birth
My growth and nourishment
Is my birth right.

All the articles of food
Are brought about by water
The soil, I stand on, is
Also created through water.
Somehow or other, my food
My clothes and shelter have
Affinity with water.

I want water.
I want food, clothes, water
And shelter for my living.

Life is successful when I work.
I want to perform my duties.
Duties such as oblations, charity
And penance, I want to perform.
I want to renounce and relinquish
For the benefit of others.

I want to say again
The famous quote
Live and let live
I believe, this world belongs
To all and not for selfish-hoarders.
