Who invented THIS?

A question of hunger never answered!
A contemplation never satiated! Are you not hungry for answers?

Who invented this Hunger

Who invented
THIS?
Who invented this Hunger?

Who invented
this Desire
this mouth
this stomach with fire

Who invented me
to devour


these foods
these plants animals
hills waters skies
and all soils

Who wants to watch ME
live on this Earth
dying after every birth
trampled under the devouring tiME

Who wants to watch & enjoy
this Game of
"devouring the devourers"
teasing these frail souls.

(PS: I felt me
and tiMe
are in a graphic rhyMe. )

Who am I?

Death is the fact of Life

Kid, stand on your own and become a full human!

A very good question and artistically put in that beautiful poem. As a Chritian I believe and know that God did not create those desires. These are in fact effects of sin. God made and put all thng before them and there were no such desire, only when they were tempted to be like God, did they realise the effect to be in need and had to work for it.

Powerful, expressive and highly original in style and phrasing. Enjoyed your parenthetical "ME" word play, too. Thanks for sharing. Namaste, rd

Hunger was brought by man from beyond the vortex of the black hole that is on the other side of all births and deaths. So it is cosmic, and from the intensity of hunger we often feel, we can guess the combustionable craving for self-realization that was in that vortex when the world was created out of it. Just as we carry a piece of ocean, our ancestral home, inside us, we carry hunger inside us as a representational feeling, out of the original of which we were created.
