Caged helplessness

Enjoying the sights of  caged beings

 Have we ever thought how they feel

In their limited spaces

Restlessly pacing

Restricted  movements

No free will to roam

Eating  when and what given

No springs, lakes or rivers

To drink water or bathe

Removed from their natural habitats

Taking away their right to live as they please

The look of despair  and helpless

Says their tales

If  only  they could speak

I am sure would express

Their wish to be free      

 As they were meant to BE

Am I doing Charity?

Someone asked me
What you do for charity?
I said β€˜nothing’
Silence !!!
Then a look of superiority
On the other face
Is the charity a great deed?
Well I do not think so
I feed a hungry mouth
That is kindness
I wipe tears of pain
That is compassion
I stand by someone
That is sympathy
I never ignore plea for help
That is duty
I embrace every being
That is humility
I stand by my dear ones
That is love
I is not my ego
That is consciousness
I am what HE choose to make me
That is why I am nothing
But reflection of HIM
My acts are not for others
That is my true self
