Untamed Heart

Wanderer Of The Streets

I walk with no slippers
Tattered dress is all I have
And, a piece of bread is what I am proud of

Every day is a new opportunity
While yesterday is a great history....for others
For me? It's a typical stomach wrenching story

You've seen me begging for alms but you look at me flatly
Is it difficult to share a hard-earned blessing?
Why I'm deprived of a word 'choice'?

Would you care to listen to my inner thoughts?
Would you mind feeling my heart's aches?
Would you be at my side for a minute?

Ummm...perhaps I'm impossible
Who would dare to spend a time with a beggar?
A garbage of society?

I'm not blaming you for what I have become
But, who is to blame?
Is it my irresponsible parents or a corrupt government?

    Many of us have been in difficult situations that we look back on and see how far we have come.
    My parents, didn't parent and as for the government, they help very few.
    May your wandering find you a place you wish to be.
    Thank You

    Thank you for your message. Actually, this is not my situation but the kids I've seen on the streets from where I've work before. How I wanted to help them get out of their sorry situation but I only extended something. At present, I'm struggling to cope with my own battle. I think I could no longer emerge.

    More blessings to you!
