DAY BY DAY

Day by day the rich becomes richer,

day by day the poor becomes poorer.

The mother feeds her breast milk equally

to her five children though

they are not equal in physical and mental attributes.

It’s the law of nature-

mother will always distribute her resources equally among her children.

But why is there an inequality?

Because the children fight among each other ignoring their mother,

so, some gathers more, some less;

some earn endless profit; some suffer from irreparable loss.

Day by day the rich becomes richer,

day by day the poor becomes poorer.
