Teen aged boy

He is a teen aged boy
Waiting to see a life full of joy.

He starts his morning
With a sip of tea
And explores the whole night
Floating on the wheels of
The dense cigarette smoke.

He pumps the air in
Cycle’s tubes
He washes the plates in the road side restraint
He picks pockets in local trains
He blacks the cinema tickets
He plays with a knife
With his wounded fingers
He has blown all his worries in
cigarette smoke.

He is a teen aged boy
waiting to see a life full of joy.

His dreams are compressed in  a
Colorful  balloon
he watches the flying balloons
with his blank and emotionless eyes
some times he watches the
direction of wind
which sends his dreams to
God’s place hoping that
God will return his balloons
Full of joy and happiness for his life.

He is a teen aged boy
waiting to see a life full of joy.

  5. Hi Hemant,

    I feel for the boy in your poem. Unfortunately many teen boys are lost. Sometimes it's phase, sometimes not. Nice poem

    Thanks for stopping my photo blog. Please feel free to follow it. Take care.


  6. प्रिय हेमंत जी, आपके पास सचमुच एक बहुत ही संवेदनशील कवि हृदय है .. ये अर्थ गम्भीर रचना है.. टीनएज युवक के माध्यम से व्यवस्था की जड़ता और संवेदनशून्यता को कुरेदती हुई.. कई रंगों में खुलती है.. सम्भव हुआ तो हिन्दी अनुवाद का प्रयास करूँगा ! मुझे बहुत पसंद आयी है !
