FSF: Scorching

I pass by them every morning, their kids wouldn't be older than 5 or 6.

The stay in the pavements, they eat left-overs, they wear torn 100 times re-stitched clothes and shoes.

Their kids, play in scorching sun, their men work in every condition, their houses don't have electricity or water

The term luxury for them is a someones hand-downs that aren't torn.

Still they  have friends to rely on, and a huge smile on their face, that SMILE! My friend, is the most beautiful, and that Smile is priceless

This post is written for Lillie McFerrin, Five Sentence Fiction - Scorching

  5. I remember a tale narrated by my grand mom in which the King asked his assistants to find the shirt of the happiest man in his kingdom and the happiest man did not even possess a shirt.

    The streets kids are adorned with genuine smiles .

    1. True story by your Grand-mom,
