to see that poor

to see his face

what i see?

that child future

that family future

the tears of mother

the hope of a father

and that cute smile of that child


how they eat?

how they fight?

fight with a disease everyday

sit starving every night

don't know when government

wake up from his dream

what they will do with all their money

if they don't able to give them money

the money for their two meals

of their wage

live in palace

not much left for them

ready to die

but don't ready to give anything to needy


live in slum

for their education

for their life

this is a society of our poor life
