Butterflies from life’s garden

A girl growing up in neglect
Hated the lunch she was given
She used to spend the day hungry
And feed the lunch to stray dogs.

One day she was sitting in class
When she heard a voice as sweet as bird,
“Sister do you have some extra food?”
She looked up and saw a tiny tot in rags.

Daughter of the construction laborer
Her heart melt and she brought out
Her lunchbox, the child gobbled up
Each and every bit as if it was divine.

When she was about to leave
She was asked to come again
If became a daily routine
One’s rejected food became another’s diet.
