Deep Thought

There she goes & Do you see? #OctPoWriMo day 29 & day 30

Two poems again, day 29 and day 30. 

DAY 29: There she goes

Summer mornings

winter nights
I see you 
standing by
clinging to thoughts
beautiful thoughts
your mind
so clear so pure

Your mood
Blue, yellow or white
Different shades of you
you carry all, once in a while
Now that you have gone
Your memories have stayed behind
Your talks, I see them
standing by the window side
A beautiful spirit that you are now
Your teachings will stay here
every year, by the window side

DAY 30: Do you see?

That girl, do you see? 
The one I am pointing towards? 
was abandoned by her parents
at the age of three

That road, do you see? 
Right next to the huge showroom
a woman living on streets,
gave birth to a boy there; in noon
both died there, soon

That spot, do you see? 
where a mountain of garbage exists
There's a school right besides
with flies and water under benches
how was your school like?

That dump, do you see?
used to be home for many
slums these were
schools and trees these were
for international games
thousands were thrown on streets

That pond, do you see?
was a home for beautiful birds and shrubs
the water now black
used to be blue and white

About "Do you see"- all the verses are true. I have either met these people or read in newspaper. Visited these sites and pointed the same way. Where are we now? What have we done? To our nature? To our own race? Its hard to bring a change in world, because for that we must change ourselves. But, would we?
