World Disabled Day
Whether they are physically
Or they are challenged mentally
Whether they are unable to use thier hands
Or they are unable to use their feet,
Whether they are surviving on sands
Or they are living their life on streets.
I, am here to make this commitment
On the eve of this world disabled day
They too are human beings as are we
They too deserve respect and hospitality
Apart from a loaf bread
They too demand a small loaf of love
From we like people we have everything
But we shouldn't forget they too are human being
They too are human being they too have heart.
Croosing the streets, crossing the roads
They are seen with their partial body
Someone has a hand someone has a foot
Though they are incomplete they are human being
Treat them like a human being
They deserve it.They want it.They need it
On roads, on bus stands, on platforms
They are seen begging to run their life
We should think, though their houses are small
Never will be their heart.
More than the hunger of food
They are hungry for love.
Love, that love from us we, the people.
They are physically disabled
Poverty is their ornament
Hanging in their necks.
However, the labour they preform
All are consumed by their stomach
But, they have no complaint with this almighty
They only need our love
That love is should from our heart
Thus, on this World Disabled Day,
Let us take this oath within ourselves,
Never to ignore one of them
Let our love on them showed
As they too are made by the same God.
