Have A Heart

We ache for food,water and security,
That's why I have always acted out,
On the streets with my mum and basin for a drum.
I don't like what we do,
Neither is mum happy with it.

We endure life instead of enjoying it,
All we do atleast add up to our basic.
My mum is dumb that's why she always,
Beats the drum as I sing,
And I'm the product of rape so I'm the only kid.

We can't depend on the government for survival,
Since we got a committee of thieves instead,
Offlate I heard one of them is a womanizer.
We beaver away for a coin,
Though when lucky we get a few notes.

I'm grateful for those who pass by to drop something,
You always make me buoyed up.
I wonder why the rich always buzz around,
Whenever they see us.
Ain't we humans like you?
How I wish you would chucked out ,
Some stuffs for us.
For you dispose food which we lack.
Your dogs eat better than us.
They got kennels while we got cartons for bed

    makes me buzz with ego of belonging to a good family but the as it ends I get flattened realizing most times I refused to understand that the coins in my pocket belonged to the beggar and hawkers.
