The beggar

by Sanjida Shaheed

A beggar
Is standing
At Your door.

Begging
For food,
Clothes
And shelter.

Yes!
A beggar!
That is
Who I am!

You sent me
To Earth
Empty-handed.

I own nothing.

Nothing owns me.

To You
We all
Belong.

From You
We all
Seek help.

Mercy!
Mercy!
Have mercy
On my soul!
