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
