Poem of the Week: Beauty from Ashes

What a wonder it is, To see the beauty on their faces, Smiles painted in strange and unlikely places, They roam the corners, alleys and streets, In search for warmth and food to eat, Any place at all to sleep

What a wonder it is

To see the beauty on their faces

Smiles painted in strange and unlikely places

They roam the corners, alleys and streets

In search for warmth and food to eat

Any place at all to sleep

Company, someone who they can call friend

Life in its unfair nature

Bore them to so much pain and torture

How can such beauties be conceived by such wickedness

Innocent children abandoned for the painful grip of death

Left by hearts, short of love

Yet, they awake everyday

Better clothed than lavenders and lilies

And with more food than the sparrows

If these who we term “UNFOTUNATE”

Can live with so much happiness

Then we have so many questions to answer
