I stood all alone….
As there was none to behold me, In search of my own existence, I tried to look beyond and found none who could help me out.
From the day I came to know that I was a living thing and every other consider me non living thing
As I was the one, who lately came to know that I had no parents.
My existence died before me, when people told me that I was an orphan and I came to know lately that I had to struggle for my bread and butter more than being a wonderful person.
I had a dream of being a doctor, an engineer, a govt servant, but I came to know lately again
As there were many like me, who were dying or sold for someone else existence
Was this the world I was looking for or was this the world God had thought about me.
Was this the world I had none to curse other than God whom I never met.
But one day struggling and strolling, I met my shadow when sun wasn’t there to show me. It was the day when I came to know that there were many like me.
I befriended them
I formed a community
I formed a beehive
I formed togetherness
As they thought that they formed it.
This was the confidence
This was the life.
Wherein I would move upon
On calling their hunger
We would either loot heart
As we never knew what theft was
We would either work hard for an agent
As we never looked into percentage gained
We would play in rain and dirt
As none were there to scold us
We would sleep at off times
As we were mother to each other
We would play with whatever we had
As there were none to make us learn
We would study at those dim lights
One would say A for Apple
One would say other
But we studied together
Peeking a hole made in every school
Wherein every child would study the same prayer
We learnt and we really learnt
Today we stand far off
From this selfish world
When everyone learnt to think lately of a friend
We learnt at an younger age
We hardly, many among many orphans
Who went on right track to reach the destination
We are destined and will see
One day we help every orphan
Who would have lost his/her own track
And that’s what destination is meant to be
It’s the hope which survived amongst us
