A Poem Dedicated to the Underprivileged

By Pari, age 11, India


Oh, look! Unwanted to my sight,
There’s someone hidden in the window light.
Who is it?
At the time of the candle lit?
See, it’s a boy
Willing to sell a toy;
Looking at him,
We say it’s bad,
And we the traffic police go mad.
We rush and go,
Forgetting about all the sorrow.
Why can’t we?
Why can’t we help?
Why can’t we see?
Are we blind?
Then why can’t we?
Are we deaf?
Then why can’t we?
I question you,
Why can’t we?
