The Beggar - Poem by Vani Agarwal
I am different I don't criticize,
as there is no time for useless cries,
I sit on the road and watch cars go away,
Hoping that one will help me so that I can spend one more day.
They think I use this money on useless things,
But I actually use it to feed my little beings.
Many people say I should rather work,
But when I go there they send me away and smirk,
People ridicule me everyday,
But there isn't a word I can say.
I tell my kids life is an adventure,
Hoping that they don't make one rupee their daily expenditure.
I lie below the stars and sleep,
Wondering how everyday is a faith's leap.
