Heedless of the luxuries around, they play amidst the hustling street,
Tripping over tragedy forever, they learn to become concrete.
Flipping over in filthy mud, swimming in a scuzy pond,
satisfied with their worst lifestyles and never wondering beyond.
Grooving to their own sweet songs, hoping for nothing to make them stand back strong.
Exceptionally surviving the lowest version of weather,
feeling overjoyed on wearing old, disowned frocks and sweaters.
Sadly, their lives are worst than what we hold the strength to bare,
Yet, they enjoy sufficiently and barely care.
That is the thing about little beggars across the lane,
Chained down to the Earth, they never bother about loss or gain.
