Child Bids Us Bye - Poem by arvind shah

Child bids us bye

I am a child
You are grown
I give you love
You give me hate
I give you growth
You give me death

I am not happy
Sad: I go to sea
Dig my face in sand
Life: I cannot withstand!


on a heart touching picture of a child on a sea shore, dead because of human violence

    An horrendous and tragic tale of man inhumanity to man, well articulated, nicely encapsulated and insightfully penned. My heart bleeds for the unfortunate child. May his innocent soul rest in peace. Thanks Arvind for bringing to limelight such an ugly crime. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. Already Reported Reply
