One evening I decided I should go for a walk, since the wind outside would be a relief from the heat. So, I grabbed my Bluetooth earphones and my phone and went downstairs. And just as I was entering the walking path, my earphone hit me with a “low battery” message. I was annoyed, thinking of how its going to be so boring now. And I noticed my maids two kids, playing with a plastic bottle. They were giggling loudly. And I was suddenly glad my earphones were discharged, because that giggle had intrigued me to write a new stoem..
He may not have a house so big
Nothing special to brag about
May not know what lies ahead
His future may be full of doubt
May not always get full meals
wonders why his parents are always away
And yet he giggles every now and then,
Cause happiness doesn’t cost anyway
She may not have the prettiest of dresses
Or the glitters that other girls wear
Other girls get what they want
While she always has to share.
But if she feels pretty in her heart
She doesn’t care what they say
And so, she giggles every now and then,
Cause happiness doesn’t cost anyway.
no fans to keep the heat outside
a shaky roof above their head
a flickering candle on one side
and an equally shaky bed
yet they just shrug and go with the flow,
have learned the art to smile through pain
hurdles will always come and go,
but happiness always remain the same.
One thought on “STOEM#11 Happiness Doesn’t Cost Anyway:)”
Dear Pranjali, about a week back I was thinking about when I shall be getting to read your next stoem and here I am pleasantly fascinated again by the simplicity with which you relate to the life around you. Thank you so much for the enchantment you bring along with your writing. Blessings, Shikher.
