God's Partiality

Seeing a girl of my age
wiping away sweat
facing the horrible heat
and selling flowers...

I didn't know
whether to be angry with God
for doing this to her
Or thank God..
That he didn't do it to me

Most likely the girl is thankful to god for showing her a way to earn her livelihood.

She might envy you. You might not envy her lifestyle. She would have been happier if she had a better lifestyle. But she certainly doesn't hate her own life for what it is.

bah... it's no good if you feel that way once in a while.. if you don't put in a genuine effort to help these people there's no point in wasting ur emotions on them..


What I'm saying is that "Sympathy never helped anybody"

monu said...

@sanjiv

may be i should do something...
but this was not about sympathy for her..it was about me thinking from a selfish point of view or not.......
just another scribble....
