TAKE A LOOK

Image

Take a look at that small skinny boy,

With withered clothes and a wry smile,

Finding solace a midst garbage, a sliver of joy,

Running and falling on that dry waste pile

Take a look at that old hideous lady,

Begging to manage at least one meal a day,

She has a dusty complexion, but a bit shady,

Carrying her half dead baby along the way.

Take a look at that ruined abandoned house,

Caressing its way through the shrubs and vines,

Now, a home to insects, snakes and a mouse,

Time and tide have slowly taken away its shines.

Take a look, brother, take a look now,

Seep into the flow of life around,

Listen to your fate and take a solemn vow,

Get lost into the wind and later be found.
