Sad song of a remote village factory girl


Her soft fingers are ideal for a piano reeds to make a classic musical note
But she struggles with hard steel and turn them into tools.
Sharpen tools go to the market and she comes home with a blunt heart.
She re-counts her small daily wage for her wedding dress
But her partner still fights to earn something.
In her fading dreams she hears the wedding bells
While the boy who writes his beautiful curriculum vitae to another World.

    This is sad and sweetly sung, Nimal. You're right. Poverty is a cruel life journey. Your story stirs the reader to change the world and bake a beautiful wedding cake for these two lovers to live happily ever after. Thank you for sharing this beautiful poem. Love, Allie x x x x (Report) Reply

Our life is twofold; Sleep hath its own world,
A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality,
