MYSTERY AND MISERY

The cry of the poor is unheard and uncared

So is their misery unnoticed and unshared.

They begin their day with a desire to progress

But the debts that lay pile up to their distress.

From dawn to dusk they sweat for a meagre pay

Their woes and throes of life are boundless to say.

Their hearts seem broken as if struck with an arrow

All that they have inherited is just endless sorrow.

s.jpg

The depth of the sea is unknown from the shore

So is their misfortune which falls as downpour.

Their expedition has always been an arduous drive,

With shattered dreams they strive hard to survive.

s.jpg

Those born with some handicap find it still worse

They beg for bread and butter with no other source.

With pleading eyes they seek some care and support

 But time marches on with no words of comfort.

s.jpg

The poor find it hard even to save a penny

While the rich relax and hoard their money.

Those born low, though good, are denied honor

While the royal own it, in spite of being a sinner.

s.jpg

Why is there a disparity in status and dignity?

Why has kindness to the poor become a rarity?

A change in law cannot unleash these knots

It’s all in the attitude of man and his thoughts.
