The Increasing Price

It's increasing the price of daily necessaries
Increasing in our day to day life on everyday basis
Burning the skies, burning the body 
We feel the result in the torturing hot weather
No escape running from one place to another
No step for saving the existence
A long sigh - Oh God!
God smiles on over head and surrounding the earth
Mocks at the tricks ---played to the commoners
Things are available in front or back
Things are decorated to buy or cost
Things are no way to touch and pass
We are living in the world 
Where the other part is in the grip of hand
But the things lie around us so far as too away to touch the sky flying bird
The medicine kept out of reach to the children
The price of daily necessary things is increasing in such and such
In our day to day life on regular basis
Why is the price of humanity waning on the other side?
