One pay check away..


If our happiness is one pay check away,
If our respect is just one pay check away,
If our peace is just one pay check away,
If our confidence is just one pay check away,
If our identity is just one pay check away,
Let us seek it and Let us be happy.
not in our motherland where we have no bosses,
but in other land, grabbing their chance.

    When I submitted this poem in poetry.com yesterday, someone commented that it was not original and then I googled why the honorary commentator wrote like that as I didn't come across a poem as this. There is a web site phil.com which talks about one pay check away problems of American people, which is quite informative..

    My intention to write this poem is, to hit the Indian government which does not provide enough opportunities for Indians..Thank you readers.. (Report) Reply
