An Orphan

His bleak piece of meat,
Cacophony of his grief.
Sweat shrieked on his skin,
the scuffle for vittles to win.

Destitute, the eyes,
Never dared to dream a care!
He shook my hand
And tried to share,
A plight of his daily nightmares!

Bottomless pit, bereft bowels
His rags and dusts that travel.
What are toys or his plays,
All he thinks is to manage his dreads.
Tussle for life, an endeavour to feed;
His hunger, a different greed.

And we share a meal and some joys
His innocent smile and tiny eyes
Departed as I; taking a Sigh.
Silhouettes drawn of strayed life;
The meager truth of an Orphan cries.

Country needs them, but first they need an Eye.

By Light of Life

Hi!
I am born in India, am a Civil Engineer by profession and Punjabi by nature. I am pleased to have you here reading my words. I hope you are doing fantastically fine. This is a brief introduction about myself, Apart from building roads at work, I spend my time writing poetries and articles. Also, I love to garden, plant saplings and see them grow. You would agree that Everything needs the right amount of resources and time to come out in their full form and Nature is the best teacher of it.
I also have an interest in travelling, I love to talk to people I meet in my odyssey and understand the subtle emotions they try to connect with.
I have travelled most parts of India and would love to see the entire country. Also, am keen to know different cultures of the world that define Humanity.
I Believe in Love, Laughters and Listening. Happy to have you reading till the end
Cheers

I know, it is very emotional to see them, especially in these time when some have their families and a few who are unprivileged to have one, are shattered to see no one outside to give them charity.
These kids they don’t even know what a lockdown means, what is to store food grains beforehand when they hardly can feed a meal of a day. We can only hope that the govt supplies reach all.

Yes it’s a lesson for all of us. Our decline to the ruthless exploitation of nature, humans and animals.
And this subject poverty has been more discussed than taken care of. Time to change our actions also, from being inactive to active ones.
And, thanks for liking it. 😊😊
