POOJA NATARAJAN

(2.6.1994 / INDIA)

A new pair of shoes


One day I went out of the house
running behind a mouse.
I saw many children play
but they were not happy and gay.

I asked them why
they began to cry.
I went to console
and saw a hole!

Their shoes not able to wear
not a penny to repair.
They cried in dispair-
Oh! sister
we will get a blister.
If we don't wear shoes

Then I bought the a new pair
they loved them to wear.
Away the went to play
happy and gay.

Then I saw God on my side with a message-
Oh! child...... always remember
Do your KARMA do not worry about the fruit.GOD id there to help YOU

That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
