A Question To God - Poem by Sumita Datta

Though I am not alone by birth
But I do not have a shelter in this earth...

I don’t know who are my mother and father
Like me there are many other(s)

We have never seen, mamma’s love and dad’s anger…
We spend many nights in hunger…

We are known as street children…
We spend our days in pavement, parks or in gardens…

We never get any kind of love or respect…
Tell me God? Where is our mistake?

    A thought provoking question! Wonderful composition! Keep writing. I am a newcomer to this site. I just had a glance through your poems and found them interesting. In course of time I will take time to read and comment more on more of them. Meanwhile I would like you to know that I have pasted here a collection of my poems on the well known social worker late Baba Amte. I think you would be interested in knowing more about him and his work. I would like you to kindly go through some of them at your convenience, give your valuable comments and help me spread his universal message. (Report) Reply

    i for one
    wish to be born
    an orphan
    even in spite of the
    lovely parents i had
    a family and sibblings
    can sometimes become
    a thorn (Report) Reply

    This question should not be asked to God, but to your ministers, and capitalists who are responsible for this sufferings of the have-nots. In India people always believe in luck and God, and do not analyse the real factors behind their poverty. One man analysed it long one hundred fifty years ago in a book called Das Kapital and the person was Karl Marx....Ask him he will tell u where the reason of poverty lies.. (Report) Reply

    This is a beautiful poem from you for them.Irony is they are punished for commiting no offence to mankind but for fulfilling the irresponsible human lust.
