Alms

Rating: 5.0

Yes
Today
I will
Give her alms
But only
If she asked
Which she always did
Mysterious cruelty
Not a single glance
As she passed

Hands full of alms

A conscience that is whipping your soul. A beautiful write.

You are speaking the mind of all.... Some give alms out of moods, some give out of concern and some give on conditions... I feel like giving alms to a new beggar but when the same beggar extends the hands again and again I feel annoyed.. I can`t write a poem on my attitude.. Still we are all sailing in the same boat of giving alms not often.. Good sharing Sanjay
