My Life Story - Part 1
I grew up in a normal family,
A story told by different people,
with the same affinity.
Grew along with the same saying,
"The richer gets richer and the poor gets poorer".
Never did I care to look into the latter side,
Never did I weep for those impecunious.
All along I was enticed in the richness,
That never did I know I will fall below.
Then did I know what it felt like,
Being indigent, hungry, thirsty and in solitude.
A light of hope was sent from above,
I gained my strength to fight back,
Not to be enticed in the same richness,
But for those dwelling below just as I was.
