I peeped out of my car’s window…
Looking at the kids rushing out of their houses,
Back to school, after the summer break.
With fancy bags and branded shoes,
Some were crying not to go.
While some were excited to go.
On the other side of the road I saw,
A girl who was dreaming a dream she couldn’t fulfil…
She was holding a doll,
In a worn out dress.
I saw a boy making shoes,
but never made one for himself.
His feet were burning in the sun
but he knew he had to work…
I looked out of the window,
Thinking that there would be millions
Of such kids in the world
with a dream they cannot fulfill.
