Life in the Eyes of a Child






I saw the sun of the universe

Before I was born

I saw the thorns of the universe

Before I was born

I read the norms of the universe

Before I left the womb




I saw the plights of the blind

The cries of the tribes

The crimes of the rich

The heaviness of the human heart

The home of the doomed




The horror, the torture, the puncture,

The programmed series of stress,

Everyone comes to face… I saw it –




I saw chains on my fellow preys

Before I was born

I saw dislike for my kind

Before I left the womb

I saw millions of my type

Buried in the womb

Not this very one is safe

I saw – tombs in wombs

I was still in the womb

Prey for an uncertain doom

I saw heads of my mate – beheaded

For famished grown to feed

Before I was born…



I know that is where I’ve come to pace...


Before I was born – I had formed alliance against them.
