Orphan way of Lifes perspective

On celebration day visited Orphanage
Wishing to plant smile on orphan lips over sponsored dinner
Surprised, Orphans greeted with warm smile as if family get together 
Meet Time catapulting perspective of living with grace

Content faces, bitterness dissolved in sweet acceptance of life 
And in contrast my Lifes clock ticking all the time to accumulate
Losing cultural values, gaining ego, hunting equilibrium of fate  
Meet raising curiosity to rewind Lifes clock for insight into materialistic strife  

Ashamed at life being worse than Orphans, resolved to live with cheer 
Since that time smile is uppermost in mind whether on self or others lips
Heart with rein on anger and greed, life blissfully leaping forward in steps
Meet unfolding, parents though best teachers Orphans this TIME more did offer

    Makes me sad to think how ungrateful we can be when the orphans find happiness in their hearts. Good luck in Barbara's contest, Hitendra! This poem is so moving. Best to you, Diane

    A nice recollection of thoughts of the Orphnage. I too used to visit Child's home of the abused and disabled kids in 2000. Good luck, Hitendra

    How inspiring, Hitendra! If these orphans can smile, we should do the same and count our blessings. What a great poem for Barbara's contest. Wishing you success. Love, Carolyn
