Life Sans Light

Life sans light
They are sitting in a remote dark room
to relax without switching on light.
For they want a real light
that brings peace and solace
in their laborious humdrum life.

They toil from dawn to dusk
without a pocket full of money
that is their light for the remaining
languorous somber days of life,
their lack of light that dissuades
them to seek better chances
that may brighten them
and glamorize their prospects..
When I asked them ,gloomily
they replied, ‘we do not want light’
‘Why I thought, ‘ Are they scared
of light that may trouble them
of their existing miserable plight?’
Yes ,if they think of ‘lack of light’
in their life, they may have to hate
the place where they are working

with an unshakeable might
along with the compelling might.

I am grieved to ponder
over their suffocated voice
in their exhausted life .
that is always hushed in denying light.

I have much light
to counsel them about
their drudgery that enhances
their ever pricking memory.

But their never ending
misery snubs their pale
spirits to enkindle
their desire to revolt.

Why does the sun never show its bright light in their lives to brighten their minds instead of burning their bodies!
