Feelings Of An Orphan :'(





orphan
(Image taken from here)

I am a left alone child
In this world so cruel and wild

I stand alone in the heavy crowd
I talk to myself aloud

I stand amidst hot sun, biting cold winds and rain
I suffer from loneliness more than from pain

I starve for parents love
I pray for it looking at the stars above

I lack smile on my cheeks
I starve from hunger for weeks

I beg on the empty street
Under hot sun, with my bare feet

Society greets me with insults, catcalls and brickbats
Sometimes, I am left out with food eaten by rats

My stomach is always empty
My pain no one can ever feel or see

My heart is filled with dreams that are full
But, I lead a life that is too painful

I work too hard for food all day
I have no place to stay

In this huge world, I am all alone
And I am totally unknown

I have nothing that is my own
I cry looking at myself with painful tone

I cover myself with the clothes dirty and torn
My paths are filled with pricking thorn
I don't know why I was born!!!

My body has no flesh but only bones
My heart has turned into stone

I am cursed by many, cared by none
My heart breaks when I see other parents pampering their son

I hammer stones with my tender hands
I wander for shelter on empty lands

I lift weights beyond my capacity
All I ever receive is pity or sympathy

All I need is a caring touch, a helping hand
My pain, a person who could understand

I wish God listens to what I pray
I am living with hope that I'll smile one day

Hi Valli its good. But you can write in a better way.

You touched only one part . He can feel the happiness of all the things in the nature. You could have touch his happy part also like " I may not feel the mothers hug but I can njoy the warmness in sun rise" "I may starve for some days but when I get a bread I am the king of the day". They also have happy part Valli.

Its my personal opinion don't mind

Great work!

Oh! you plucked a chord from my heart...

Vishnu Keloth said...

awesome rhyme scheme...but some lines r like sentences...remember : there is a mild tolerance for grammatical errors in case of writing poems... u could use it as an advantage to shorten long lines....(I am not a critic.... just telling what i thought... and never have i written poems as much as u did...)
