I am the TIGER.
Once in abundance, now in scarce.
Thanks to man. I'll become extinct soon.
Maybe then, he will realize his sins.
Man is the greatest creation,
Yet he likes destruction.
Man wants to rule:
Which makes him so cruel.
Man is losing his soul,
As he want to remain sole.
I am powerful yet vulnerable.
Man is intelligent yet ignorant.
I am beautiful yet humble.
Man is blessed yet greedy.
Man weeps when his child is killed.
Why doesn't his heart bleed, when he kills mine?
I wish man listens to my prayer,
And does not make me his prey.
I am an animal, but why man acts like one?
Man causes me pain for his gain.
He loves my skin to make latest trend.
He takes my life to make his's fine.
Man amuses to see me but fails to see my pain.
I wish he read the silent plea in my eyes.
Which says" PLEASE SAVE ME"
