    Thank you for this wonderful poem. Nonchalant posture to the downtrodden is the evil human being is facing. That's while I wrote: I want Be A Lifeline. Pls read it (Report) Reply

    We may like it or not, the haves and the have nots is an universal phenomenon. It may be because of the 6 inherent enemies viz greed, anger, lust etel gifted to us by the almighty and because of it there is no equitable distribution of prosperity etc. You have adroitly caught the follow-up scenario. A meaningful poem. Congrats. (Report) Reply
