This is first poem I have written and it is 4.5 years old. I came across it surprisingly and thought of sharing it here. Pardon my English, it sounds as if I did a true translation from my mother tongue to English.
Wishes , not being fulfilled
Dreams , not coming true
Goals, not able to achieve
Making me numb , turning me into a stone
Making me think , what should i do?
Making me sad , why should i live?
Making me think, of committing suicide
But lack of valiance………….
Saw a child working in a shop
seen him beating up by his owner
seen him being abused by heartless people
seen him working hard for food
Seen him always smiling and celebrating
Now, this moment I felt differently
Never before I was feeling different when I saw a child working
Is this called the HOPE I am seeing in his face?
My tears are washed away by that unknown power
Making me smile unknowingly
Then I realized , what is life about
Happyness is the eternal thing in life
and till it comes we have to have the Hope
I hope HOPE will never forget me…..
some day or other I will get what I want
until then………….I Hope………………..
