Alphabets - Poem by Suhail Kakorvi

That boy was with me with sheer disgust
To hear him with patience was for me must
He ignored his studies and family needed money
His father scolded, asked him to work, very bluntly
So he chose to know and expertise in dying fabric
He got work in a shop, owner arrogant, change drastic
It was shop of dyer and dry cleaner simply mundane
Looked religious but faith on currency was his target main
For he was cunning enough to devalue the skill
With that the passion to do better he intended to kill
Delay of a few minutes in scheduled duty time
He marked refuted excuse and considered that crime
For making alternative arrangements he before boy talked
That way he demoralized the boy, nothing but he crocked
The boy repented as to why he threw down his studies
I suggested him in whisper to burden, he had, ease
My advice he by chance took very seriously and very well
To make heaven he worked hard denounced that hell
He took strong hold of the books then once again
The revival of studies began to brighten his brain
His efforts slowly brought results very encouraging
My guidance he followed and in his ears my voice would ring
My words worked and he toiled hard to fulfill his dreams
With the light of knowledge he established his business
Of the same kind, of his own, of that I am eye witness
In the mean time the same shop owner a victim of his vanity
Lost all, brought him to such poor condition for sure his snobbery
Faced fall in business now well to do boy took hold of shop
Became a purchaser, flourished with his skill, reached on top
Upon the peaks of success and in his leisure he has companion
The book, caused accomplishment of his aim, ultimate inspiration
So one must realize the value of the radiance of alphabets,
For hearts and surroundings light, for hopelessness Alkahests
The territory is he constructed developed and earned fame
Surprise not to know here Alphabets is his shop’s name

    Horrifying experience through which the boy, most probably a child labor had to face for earning pittance. The owner having main target of currency must be cruel. Nice write.8 points. (Report) Reply
