Darkness and stillness are my friends
I am poverty and beggary is my trend
A matter of surprise but a subject not to hide
Ignorance is my mother and I am a fatherless child
Soaked in blood and covered with mud
I live in this world like a hopeless bird.
if the whole world turns like me?
A little carelessness turns out to be
Sinking deep in this dilapidated sea
I cry for a life, I cry for your mercy!

    There is no need for poverty today. We have 97% of the riches of the world owned by 3% of the population, a disgrace to humanity. Vince

    Wonderful poem, so often we ignore them and please our souls by giving out a rupee or two but is that enough or is that really needed. (Are you from hyderabad ? i used to have a friend by that name.)

    As we become more affluent, we have a tendency to look the other way. We need to see with our hearts. Vince
