Poverty

April 7, 2011 12 comments

Famished, tired and hungry
In a corner of the rail station
Puffy, pale eyes
Look askance at passengers

Bruised, aching feet that cannot stand
An outstretched,  pleading hand
One meal  is all we pray for
To see us through the day

Just a coin will suffice
A piece of bread, a morsel of rice
Scavenging bins for food
Crying in anger

The office crowd in suits and ties
Look at us in disdain
They rush to get a shoe shine
Before boarding the train

The sun has set
Our tears have dried
Lying down on a rug we sleep
Hoping for dreams  of a new morn
