Orphan Smiles….!!

Soaked in sweat

Led in hunger

Thirst of hour

As I try to nourish my younger one

 

Born bare foot

None to hold

Found a little one

To hold each other

 

 

At times thunder

At times storm

Everything new

As none to explain

 

Grasping each other

For fear of none

Hunger strike with empty bellies

Crying up with dried tears

 

Making castle in sand

Wearing rags

Playing with worn-out toys

Eating leftover

 

 

Begging for living

Smiling in pain

Feelings many

With whom to share

 

Gloomy evening getting dark

Initial fear surpassed with stars

Sleeping on floor with blanket of scars

Making sure younger gets dream

 

Fading vision of future

Scratching head for what next up

Still uplifting holding hand

So that smile in them remain at par
