Childs Destiny


What is a child’s destiny?
Is it our corrupt family structure, politics, prices, poverty, poor housing or our social condition?

Is it fair to let him face such a world?
Why create a generation and let them die in no time
Is it fair to let him face such a world?
Why create a child without a destiny.

Don’t do it for fun or for a pastime,
A child is important
Never create a being without a purpose
Think about the destiny of a child.

    Child birth and destiny of a new born baby is closely related owing to circumstances of birth and family background. Here lies the adjective of destiny if it can be called for. Owing to the different family set ups the child gets or denied chances for education, facilities, noursihing foods and drinks and also as a young man or women he becomes mosttly relates to the economic and educational background of the family. Still there are chances to a new born baby irrespective of the extreme poverty and pitiable family atmosphere it faces if it has the necessary will and power to proceed the life with exemplary dedication and character which the destiny is a part of the success i.e. only one among the chance of success otherwise his attempt to face the reality and hardwork matters I think. When we study the biographies of most prominent persons success stories we find that several of them have got little or abysmal chances from families owing to the poverty they faced still they tried hard to achieve the goal of success through getting inspiration from the society surrounded to him or her and ulitimately wins the play of life. The poem is highly informative and have to be think about the very child birth itself. (Report) Reply
