Clouded Childhood

Their dreams are clouded,
Clouded by dark and threatening clouds,
Which fades away all hope,
Of brightness and sunshine.
They are the children who don’t enjoy their childhood but work,
Work to make our lives better .

They are tired of work,
Work which they are bound to do,
Just because of the financial support,
They lost their childhood.

You would find them,
Working in brick factory.
Taking bricks from here and there,
Or building walls for your security,
While they live without roof.

You would find them ,
In the crackers manufacturing firms,
With their little hands ,
Making crackers for you .
So that you can celebrate your joy,
While they celebrate the threats and danger .

You would find them,
Transferring our boxes or delivery.
So that we have what we need ,
At the place of our desire,
While they don’t even do what they wish to do.

You would find them,
Cleaning your houses.
Making it neat and tidy ,
For us to live hygienically,
While their own health is always deteriorating .

You would find them,
At some small place ,
With no roof and no wall,
With no celebration and no joy.
All together facing the weather,
And cursing their faith,
With no place and no food.

Just gaze in their eyes,
And you would know,
What hopes and desire they carry,
Not of big villa or branded clothes,
But of books and paper.

They desire to learn,
To experience the greatness of knowledge,
To understand the depth of wisdom,
To know the truth behind things,
To broaden their mindset,
To do something they loved.

They desire to learn how to read,
And how to write,
To play the game they liked,
To jump when they pass the exams,
And to celebrate when they hold the degree.

They desire,
Mere laws won’t remove the clouded dreams,
Our initiative and our effort,
Will remove it.
The biggest gift we can give is the gift of childhood.
Let’s come together to let these kids ,
Experience sunshine and,
Dance in rain…
