November SECOND RUNNER-UP: ”IF ONLY” by Wakchin Nengak

You shame our figures,

And jeer our want of wholeness.

If only we need no wheeled couch

And our claws can clinch when we try to grasp,

If only our vigour meant able

And lets us go places devoid of groping,

If our limbs were erect

And let us walk about like your body does,

Will lips mock the shape nature carved us in?

For how can one stretch his lesioned limbs?

Oh! my hearts beats at the speed of rage!

To see me creep to sate my needs like an infant
