The Beggar

while seated in a two-wheeled chair

with a foot resting on the footrest and the
other amputated foot keeps hanging
his two arms are maneuvering the wheels
and meanders around the place

with small cardboard hanging in his neck

with words saying,

“Please help me buy my medicine”

though people hardly pays him attention
he greeted them with a smile
if someone gives him money
small or big amount
he returns it with thankfulness
a smile of satisfaction and contentment
the life of a beggar is a MIRROR of REFLECTION
some may have all the things in this world
but unhappy, unsatisfied and uncontented
it is not the kind of life we have but

how we make the most of it…

the beggar may not have enough for his needs
but have a different perspective on life
LIVE LIKE A BEGGAR AND SEE FOR YOURSELF…
THE TRUE MEANING OF HAPPINESS AND CONTENTMENT…
