Watching Star Poem by Kumarmani Mahakul

Watching Star

Rating: 5.0

Our duty is to show kindness on them,
By action they are begging in mass defame.
They don't know reason they are begging,
Moving places they are falling in ragging. [1]

Whole day they mooch the whole year,
They do hard work to gain without fear.
Some frighten them but quarrel some,
But the kind-hearted call they come. [2]

Torn clothes they wear never get new,
They cover mind calling God among few.
Beggars hope to fly sitting near temple,
They count the coins with ringing ample. [3]

Still they unite and integrate to build nation,
Some say fashion but they are in motion.
In between sin and virtue unseen they are,
At night beggars sleep in cold watching star. [4]

However they reap fruits of their past action,
They bind people and God in lovely affection.
Repenting on past they appeal to wash sin,
Every moment they try to fill utensil of tin. [5]

Wonder is the law of action in this Earth,
One is ruler; one is beggar of same time birth.
Oh people! Be aware of work doing here,
Surrender on feet of God and live in cheer. [6]

In this poem, a description of beggars has been made. Moving door to door they beg to get handful rice or a coin. Somewhere they get and somewhere they don't. They get insult and ragging, till then they mooch. They don't know the reason of their begging. Some of us show them kindness. They very often wear torn clothes and have no houses and they sleep under the sky at cold night watching stars. Still then they unite and integrate to build nation. They bind people and God with affection. The pathetic life is for their past action they realize and pray to God to wash out their sins. The law of action in Earth is really wonder law. At same time two persons take birth but one becomes ruler where as one becomes beggar.It is really strange. So we should do good works and think good and pray to God for peace in which we may live in cheer. This is the theme of the poem in nutshell. It is written in Deogarh, Odisha, India on this day of 26th September,2014 and is dedicated to the people of the world.

Glossary: -
Defame - lack of fame

This poem points to the discrepancy in society; the consequence of a system unethically founded.

Some times the disparity between man and man perplexes us! While one is born into the lap of luxury, another is born in the nadir of poverty! While some are rulers, others are beggars! But it is not our doing.... to a great extent, it is God's will! So we should be compassionate to the poor! Great thoughts!
