The Boy and the Old Man

Hi, I am Paramita Sen. I am an Indian writer. I love to write Poetry. Here is poetry for you.

the-boy-and-the-old-man

The boy

One day he collects the stone

Because he committed the crime.

the Little boy came to him.

He asked an easy question,

"Why did you collect the Stone?"

The old man said very calmly,

I stole some food for myself,

The little boy hears this quietly,



After being silent for a while.

He said if you stole something

That is wrong, right?

The old man says, yes.

The boy again said

One Who stole my father's job and

my mother's smile

Is he a criminal?






One Who stole my father's job and

my mother's smile

Is he a criminal?

Don't worry sir I am well.

A few days ago I went to market. There I met some children. There was one child whose life story I reflect here.

Thank you, sir. Thank you so much for reading my poetry.

Great question. Life is an individual struggle in which there will be conflicts on a microscopic level, as well as on a macroscopic level. The culprit is the same as from time immemorial. Doubts, fears and insecurities, ego, lust, anger, attachments and greed.

Struggles will happen. Make friends here and you will discover that so many humans have problems!! Yours is personal to you and painful, of course. yet we're here to learn.

A great story with an open ending. I trust that you are well.
