Good 4 u !!

Good 4 u !!

A Poem by Prateek
"

I use to walk everyday to work and on the road side, I use to notice an octagenarian lady begging for money..its heartening !! We write about our love lives..but never about such unheard voices.......

"

If you got walls to sleep, and eyes dint cry,

If there is a voice to your pain, and a shoulder to lye..

Every morning, if you could wake up to rise,

Oh you are lucky, dont be surprised….

If you have skies to stare, with no vacuum in your eyes,

If you dont shiver, seeing other people dine..

And to get a warm breath, you pay no price,

Oh you are lucky, dont be surprised….

If you have shades to go, when the sun is high,

And you have a dry bed, when the clouds belie..

By you, when the frolic is heard, there aint no sigh,

Oh you are lucky, dont be surprised….!!!
