Street urchins

Kids separated from love
Separated from discipline
Separated from themselves

Sometimes walking
Sometimes running
Sometimes cursing
Sometimes dead

-- Obododimma Oha

The poem aptly describes the sorry plight of children abandoned by their parents, at times even while leaving in same house with the parents. If only our parents will show more love and care to their cildren, more people will be happy. Thanks Obododimma for reminding us of our duties, though ironically. The society will sure be better with such reminders
