“AGYANKA”, – The little Orphan
to all my Facebook friends, seeking a change
I notice you weeping little orphan
As you pace the ground
in your loneliness.
You have no voice to ask for the love
Other children smile about
You know only fear, hurt and terror.
Deprived of direction, you are a vessel
without a captain, tormented,
homeless, and cold. The tunes you whistle
contain no joy.
But I say, dry your eyes little orphan;
even the bravest men cry,
And I’m here now
to mend those torn pieces
‘Coz guardian Angels do exist.
