You, The Lost (for the homeless children of Kolkata)


You wake, but you didn’t sleep.
You hide to keep your modesty.
You starve, cause you can’t eat.
You love the price of pity.

You wish for a happy gift.
You yearn for a sweet treat.
You play, but you never win.
You learn to make the best of it.

You grin, but you still hungry.
You lay, yet you never sleep.
You hope, with a firm belief
Come tomorrow,
You will run away
You will break away
You will fly away…..home.

You wake, tomorrow is today.
You know, tomorrow is everyday.
And yet,
You don’t know
Which way…..home.
