Poverty Speaks

Life has been quite awful for many people these days but nothing Worst than the adversities of the poor labourers in India.


They have been over utilised, exploited by the capitalists for building their empire and now they have been dumped on the road to suffer with no food, no help.


All they want is to return home when the world is stagnant with no work around. My heart grieves for them.


Poverty speaks….


My sweat built
Your soaring Castles
I gulped tremendous pain
To Fulfil your worldly desires
And I didn’t complain
Even for a second
For the tiny bread
You thrown at me in return
But now when I want you
To stand by me
You only discarded me
I am bruised,
But I have not lost hope
I will walk forever on the road
The place where my heart is
The place called home.
My sufferings are not new
May not shake your inner core
Because maybe I am poor
And poverty is only meant
To lie on the road and suffer!

Be grateful to what you have and be an Angel for the needy!

    I have great respect for India, the culture, foods, people, places, architecture and everything else they have accomplished. Of course, there is great inequality there, and in many other Asian countries, which needs remedying.

    Thank you for this reminder. Its especially easy right now, when many people are drawing inwards, to avoid seeing the economic abuse around us.

      Yes, true.. Until it comes to us we hardly see.. Making money exploiting people and nature is a sin.. Maybe this pandemic is shouting at us to change!

    A great post!
    Sadly, the situation is so true I don’t know why people who have enough of wealth are always left with less or no heart!! May God help the needy through few good hearted people!! My heart aches while hearing such conditions! As a student I’m not earning. In near future I hope I could contribute something!!!
    Thanks for this wonderful piece!

    Sometimes it is easy to complain about what we don’t have. The reality is that there are others who have absolutely nothing. I struggle with my thoughts knowing that in this world there is plenty yet we go each day knowing that some are so poor that each day they hope even for the littlest of something. Thank you for this reminder.

      Yes we all have to change… This pandemic is maybe shouting at us to change.. Our apathy towards nature, towards less fortunate people should end. Only we can do it… Thank you for sharing your thoughts!

    The same industrialists and builders who didn’t support their labourers in trying time will not be in position to run businesses without them.

    • singhpiyush6089 May 14, 2020 / 4:32 pm

      Exactly… After returning home these labourers will not come back easily… This will cripple businesses… Thank you for sharing your thoughts!
