The lost benevolence!!!

I seldom stand in opposition to my own self

Not having thanked Him enough, as in pursuit of my goals I dwelled

My mind comforts me saying He requires it not

The heart warns me it would loosen the knot,

 

Of my apathy I am reminded seeing the ill-fated

I groan over the fact I can’t be of help

Engulfed in those scary reverberations of the destitute

I exit their world having been beckoned by my luxuries

 

But at once I stop and delve into the deep ocean

Each drop of which is horrendous in taste

I can’t ever gauge the sourness therein

Startled I am left contemplating about their fortitude to drink thereof

 

It sometimes is the sight of an orphan forced to work

For its mandatory for him to feed his sister and a mother at home

I observe the harshness of life towards them

But jubilant is yours truly seeing him exchange the Hereafter for this transient world

 

I often witness a direr situation, a daughter leaving  her home to earn

Only does she understand the circumstances faced

We see us all ogling & accusing her for no reason

Making it a miserable place to survive herein!
