Your eyes

I have seen your eyes shining with life

Living in a slum one may wonder

How you had that spark in your eyes

But amazingly, you had it,

Swaying the crowd and making your path

You always had the winning attitude

Devoid the fact you are a slum-dweller

Hunger and poverty were your best friends

Your most cherished dream was bread

And most likable hobby being earning it

Still you played, sang and danced,

You hoped, you dreamed,

And facing the daily nightmares, you screamed.

But as the gloomy night turned into a shining day

All your nightmares were swayed away,

You begin restoring all your hopes and dreams

For a new song and a new play..
