Sweta Ojha poem

This beauty of a child, I met on the streets
On his vocal best, with a fun rhythm!
I say: “Do you have a minute for an autograph?
Boy, you captivate hearts on a nomad’s land
This show you pull for the random crowd
Do they seek you and your whereabouts?”
But I excuse myself to attend your call
I’m your fifth listener in an hour’s fall.
You say : “A canceled show must decide my luck
I’ve lost my break; I’ll lose my love
A family disgraced, allowances banned
I surrender and yearn for helping hands.”
And what a subtle smile, that innocent heart
Walks away and bestows on an extra penny!
While you my sir, struggle tears
And are yet afraid of many!
P.S. All I wish to convey is “Perceive life a little better every day!” 🙂

Thank you for reading.
Never let the words fall short! 🙂
