Childhood Poem-12

Rating: 5.0

He never knew light
He never knew sight
Everything around was dark.
Never saw the sky
Never saw birds fly.
He did not know beauty
Nor anything murky.
Because he was a child
Who was born blind.

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
i had written this poem when one day i came to know that the road cleaner of our colony had a blind son....i just could not understand how a boy just a couple of years younger to you could live without looking at anything....i used to scream even if mom would not be there in the room whenever there was a power failure...

A very philosophical write..... being blind, they are free of all ugliness of life! When God deprives somebody of onething, He may gift him/her with many other things... I have seen many blind people with the gift of music!
