Everyone Will Shine!

Poem By Srishti Birla 

Here is a small poem that a 10th class student from DPS Vasant Kunj wrote on poverty..and how she envisions that  if we all will work together, we can remove this devil. How one day, everyone will have a chance to shine in the glory!


I would bid a million for those smiles
For together we can conquer the world and walk for a hundred miles
If I hold your hand, and if you hold mine
Let’s make a change for those who can’t even dine
One day, everyone will shine

We can walk together, talk together and work together
Make a change in this world forever
For then he would not have to starve on the street
Nor have the heating ground burn his feet
He has no shoes, no slippers, no socks
And no means, for when he is sick to take him to the docs (doctors)

And we just sit there, watching, sipping on our wine
But, One day, everyone will shine

If we start from ourselves, we can make a difference
The challenge needs to be accepted
The arms of poverty need to be rested
For then the homeless, poor and the rich
Are all equal, eating in the same dish
Like diamonds, they are precious
And for their benefit, we all need to be ambitious

For together, hand in hand we will stay in line
Because One day, everyone will shine
