Life Shades #2

Touch of care and love,
Smoothens the day,
A heart to listen,
Resolves the complicates,
Words cycling,
Before the gestures,
Reality always far away,
Life moments rushes,
Eyes saturate slowly,
Wipes before fingers,
World differs hours,
Hours swaps days,
Days next to future.

Free verse 30 – Rickshawala

I met an old rickshawala,
A commute for the middle class
He talks openly to everyone
Trips start in the early morning
Passengers are guests for him
He treats everyone with respect
He is not getting paid from some
Taking advantage of him is usual
With knowing everything, he helps others
He is the only family livelihood
Despite all, he works harder and harder
Daily wages, fills his children stomach
Daily wages, for his wife treatment
His goodness will be noted from above.
