Should I Accept Or Not?
I just smiled at the poor little girl dressed in torn rags
with cute pony tail dancing behind.
She smilingly came in front of me.
Two little groundnuts held in her tiny fists
When opened it was wet with sweat of love.
She offered me with her twinkling eyes.
So innocent she was
She didn't give a second thought before offering.
She put me in dilemma should I accept or not?
Just forget the hygiene.
I am not asking to have it.
Should I break her heart by refusing it?
But if I take
How much delighted will she feel
That no words can describe her love in giving though a small one!
By refusing it I make her realise what she is!
Is it right to think, how come a beggar,
Who cannot stand on her feet is giving me?
Should I tell, first stand in your feet then think of it.
Or by accepting it am I degraded?
If she gives you her alms with love will you accept it?
A person standing in a pit or in a pool of tears too
can add something valuable to you life!
Don't underestimate others love and care.
Remember, a person in pain too can offer you a lending hand.
Some love are unconditional
After loosing it, you will realise due to your own false pride you have lost!
Life is short.
Accept the alms with love if the hands too are giving with love.
