    A really great poem describing life for the poor which is alien to people of the Northern Hemisphere. I congratulate you on the pace of the poem, the simple choice of words and description you have used to make your point.

    A day! Help! Help! Another Day!
    Prayers from such a common man
    Might date a victory one day..........
    Though rising every day
    To see a loaf of bread
    Earned through toiling way............a very touching poem.................Vijay

    Singing pleasantly
    Fighting to survive
    Reality clearly depicted in the poem. And compassion flows. I invite you to read some of my poems. Thank you.
