Aren’t They Us

Eyes rolling out with tears
Cold air whispering in their ears
Who are they?
Is it us who call them stray?

No money, No food
They commit suicide
They too had a childhood
Which they spent sleeping on that roadside

Aren't they us? Aren't they?

Yes! They have complained
Yes! We have heard them
What did we do for them?
Felt pity, was that enough?

Poverty stealing their smile
And that gap such drastic as Nile
From where do they come?
And where do they go?

Aren't they us? Aren't they?

The question is...
Will they ever be accepted?
