I look into my little world with smile
To find my people of different kinds,
Some related through blood and birth
Some related by marriage knot,
Others by similar wavelength of mind
Meeting occasionally in joyful mood!
To fill my world with happy words
And sharing love and emotions too.
When I smile they smile at me
When I frown they frown with me
Cheer they exchange with readymade wit
And laugh aloud to fill my world
But in sad moments I am left alone
Searching everywhere for a sharing face
Friend in need is friend indeed
Oh how I wish this saying to be true!
Even this little world is a pot
In which I run like a restless rat
Catching the wind and building castles
Hoping for a helping hand
But the world is running like a thirsty dog
Towards an end that no one knows!
But all are in the race of aimless storm
I too run, but to where I don’t know!
From dawn to dusk I run and work
I earn and eat and spend my lot
A mechanic life that run on a switch
Just rotating at someone’s hand!
I never think that I will be thrown
Out of this little world into somewhere
Is there a hell or heaven for me?
Where I can rest and stop this race?
Again and again I look into my world
Is it to eat, earn and sleep?
And to appease my senses that I live?
Then what else is the end of my life?
What is my sleep when it dawns for me?
What should I do to keep up my hope?
And to make my life a source of hope
For all those who run with me in this little world!
