You talk of wondrous things you see

I talk of painful things I feel

Its often said 'life is filled with ups and downs,

but mine is filled with downs;

I see parents caring for children,

I see children caring for parents;


Here I seat with nowhere to go,

I'm lonely without a home;

I'm a street boy

who begs for coin



Where is my mother?

Who is my father?

Did I have a brother?

Or someone to call my sister?


Do I really have a family?

What is my sin?

Why am I like this?

If only I can feel,

at least what family is;


Oh God I know you are their up above,

Watching men living in love

But, what is my sin,

That made me to be deserted in the street?

God since I have no family,

Will you be my family?

Light and beautiful is all they see
But that is not all there is to it
If only they could look close enough......

The agony of losing you
Is like a broken china unfettered hopes
That sparked neons to my buds.

Slowly you begin to sprang
Like a woman yielding to her man
Your beauty is a bang!

Oh I love this life
Sorrowful harsh heartbreaking laziness all sort of
All and love it gives.
