Poem: Poverty hits you right there!

Srishti Sharma

- Srishti Sharma

An innocent face,
Wet.
Scattered hairs.
A torned school bag,
Mismatched, large-sized,
School uniform.
Chappals complimenting,
The entire dress.
A ten hours ordeal,
For the young poor kids.
A four and a half hour school,
The rest spent on travelling.
No food.
No gadgets.
Hardly twenty rupees in pocket.
All alone in this,
Big, damn world.
But the emotions,
The happiness,
The energy,
The faith,
Is higher than the blessed,
Well-dressed human beings.
People need to learn a lot from them.
God bless these,
Fantastic souls.
Who keep going,
Even when everything,
Works against them.
And they have been,
Cursed by,
Human’s biggest enemy-Poverty.
