#6 Poem: A Boy Of Ten

image

A voice that no one heard,
An unseen face,
He resides at the roadside,
An awful, dirty place.

He sleeps on the bed,
Of pebbles and stones,
Noise of vehicles passing by,
Comprise his lubally tones.

Every morning he begs,
People to people, door to door,
And evening he spends,
Near the sea shore.

He wishes to swim,
Across the blue sea,
But he knows he is caged,
In nailed cage of poverty.

No mother to love,
No father to care,
He walks on the road,
With his feet bare.

He struggles all alone,
For his every breath,
He is not alive,
He is living his death.

He is a boy of ten,
With no hope, no light,
He needs a home and family,
To make his life bright!!

There are people in the
world so hungry, that God
cannot appear to them
except in the form of bread.
               -Mahatma Gandhi

    I have always felt sympathy towards the children who reside in the slums, who have to beg for a living, that to at such a young age. They should be allowed to be free, like we were, in that age. We used to complain about our homework, how it caged us. But it was actually the liberation of our minds. Beautiful poem you’ve written there. Keep up the good work! 🙂
