A man came with a gunny bag,

Walking in very sluggish manner,

Wearing a torn pair of pants,

Along with dirty oversized shirt hung on him,

 Deep Wrinkled face showed his paucity,

Uncombed hair messed with dust seemed like birds nest,

Weak body symbolized starvation,

Rather going and begging in front of everyone,

He choose to sit beside a dustbin,

In that he started scrounging for his verve,

He ate those snacks which was thrown by common people,

He drank the juices and shakes which was left in those bottles,

After drinking he placed all the bottles very systematically in his gunny bag,

May be by selling them he could earn for his survival,

 While scrounging in dustbin he found a full packet of bread,

Very soothing and cheerful smile was visible on his face,

He stood up with a gay as he has won the battle against his poverty,

He tried to hide that pack of bread in his bag,

But a dog came and stared on his dinner,

The dog barked on him but he didnโ€™t hit him back,

He called dog with him and sat on the corner with the dog,

Then he placed a piece of cloth on the floor,

Opened the packet of bread,

One slice he offer to that dog very majestically,

Then ate one slice very proudly,

The satisfaction was visible on his face along with self respect,

As he didnโ€™t want to beg for his survival,

He even share the food with the dog because he knows the ache of hunger,

He is the real human, who knows the pain for survival,

Hardships and meaning of life,

He taught a very meaningful lesson of lifeโ€ฆ..

Keep scribbling

Happy reading readers

Yours loving warrior
