Walking on the edge of a river-9

English Translation – Swathi Sreepada

Telugu original written by – Dr.C.Bhavani Devi

9. Value

For what this earning
Losing the life
For only caterings and interior decorations
With vast palaces … pubs…raves
Whom to capture spreading a net and how long?

Have we remembered what we ate yesterday?
Do you know what raid takes place tomorrow?
Everything remains for tomorrow, though we may not
Can anyone give us at least a day for us?

The happiness in earning god knows but
Slip discs and umpteen number of diseases are infinite
When our name is but temporary
On any property document
The entire earning being looted
When goes to corporate hospitals ….
If the calendar and the date are paused a minute
If we can greet cordially
The helping friendship

The responsibility of working
The mind that seeks forgiveness
Though separated the dreams never fall
Through our photos also we can tell children that
“These are the important days in my life”
