Poor children


Yes many act with disrespect
Yet so many show respect that is also an act
Now scene has been changed
The poverty is well managed

Jobs are easily found
If you go on round
And find no one to be hungry
This is scene of today's country

Poverty is not seen as it used to be
Children are given care to be free
No bondage or no illegal confinement
There is all round movement

No doubt poor children are scorned
Abused and sometimes stoned
It is pathetic scene
No good society can afford to see

It may take sometime to come
Before it is addressed in turn
Children are our future
No one knows about them for sure

Many celebrities have come from slums
Where they used to fill their stomach by beating drums
Yet they came up to meet challenges
Entire country or many nations may remember them for ages

Let us care for our treasure
They are our bright future
Children need nourishment and care
If we continue to neglect and abuse, it will be unfair

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
