His pain is reflected through his eyes,
When the school going children of his age give him a strange and inferior gaze.
He too wants to go to school and study,
To know new and wonderful things he is always greedy.
But when he contemplates about his poverty stricken life,
he reverts back his desire and again gets indulged in his daily strife.
Having no other option,he kills his own dreams
and nobody can hear how his heart screams.
He earnestly wants to carry school bag
and get rid of this life of slum and rag.
The age in which he should enjoy and play,
His shoulders are burdened with the responsibility of his family.
He works hard day and night
Having no free time to view sunrise, sunset or any other beautiful sight.
He is helpless in the hands of fate
And lack of money doesn't enable him to open the future gate.
