Life of an Orphan

By: SreeLakshmy


I am alone for long time like an orphan
Nobody was with me even parents
I stood for a long time expecting
Someone who love me as their kid

Even none came to calm me when I cried
I still hoped, but at last I give up
Many people came to scare me
with all my confidence and courage
I shooed them away

Often when I thought about my future
I became fearful and tensed
I asked my mind to tell me a solution
The results were confusing

However everyday I expect my father
Who live with his second wife
His kind words make me feel strong
But it was only for a small time

Everyday I see many school students
I often dream to go with them
When I see them teasing me
I would turn myself from them

Whenever everyone ask about my parents
I would immerse in the deep thoughts
Even for me, it is hard to bring myself back
So i give those thoughts away

My mind asked me why god has punished me
by making me an orphan
I often think that for hours and hours
But when I think more I would stop
because thoughts make you sick

I have asked my father to do me a favour
to take me away from orphanage
but, where i will go after that?
my step mother hates and blames me
so i think orphanage is better

Since I am an orphan none loves me
Oh! God! At least in my next life
Please provide me with parents who love me
since i hate to be neglected and
I don't want to be alone anymore in my life
