'A Child - The Crowning Glory Of Our Nation ' - Poem by AMISHA SALHOTRA

A Child is the father of the nation,
he is the god's biggest creation.
then tell me why? ? ?
his dreams have been breaking,
preventing him to touch the sky.
his hands have always been doing work,
why aren't they writing exams,
happy and gay.
he has been travelling searching for work,
day and night.
why are we unable to understand his plight? ? ?
his wish to study and go to school,
and become ready for the world to rule.
his wish to have proper food, his own clothes and a home so sweet,
but in reality he gets nothing other than beat..........
fulfilling his dreams from today,
is our only mission.
to which eradicating child labour is the only way........
