Breaks My Heart – A Poem by Meghna Venkatesh

breaks my heart

It breaks my heart,

To see children hungry;

Not because of tantrums,

But because of poverty.

It breaks my heart,

To see grandparents on the street,

At the dusk of their life;

Experiencing the worst time of their life.

It breaks my heart,

To see teenagers pick up a weapon;

Instead of a pen, because of stress.

It breaks my heart,

To see people divided;

Into countries, religions and castes.

This world, this cruel world,

Breaks my heart;

And I don’t know how long there is left,

Before it breaks me.
