A Cake Story

He stood and watched everyday

Across the street straight ahead

The sight and smells lured him

Worked on him like a charm

Oh what could he say

Bout’ the smell of warm bread

Smell of sugar made the head spin

Sprinkled on donut warm

Some topped with icing strawberry

Chocolate and flavors so many

Three tiered cakes with ganache

With little flowers sweet tasting

Made him crave very

If only he had a few penny

A few dollars here and there stashed

Today he would not be fasting

A homeless poor boy was he

Not familiar to privileges lots

The best that he could get

Was the whiff of fresh eclairs

Some stale tidbits free

Pastry someone dropped

His mind was now set

He soon took life by the horns

Took up work in a shop of confectionary

Learnt many skills

Worked hard gathered a wealth

Although life was a bed of thorns

Not a place to make merry

To never give up was his will

Worked in sickness and in good health

The day arrived

Finally a dream came true

Opened a shop did he

Of cakes donuts and pastries

The business did thrive

Perseverance got its due

Patience was the key

His success was no mystery

His reward was for the homeless

To hang a board up there

‘Take what you will

From this counter there’

‘Cause he was once poor never aimless

He climbed up the stairs

Achieved his dream until

He could help a hungry somewhere!

Foreword:In this world full of sad ,bad and mad news there comes a story of pure unadulterated humanity.A story which touches the heart and makes us believe that in a world where people are finding a reason to kill or hate someone on reasons of religion,race,caste or gender Β ,their are still some people who despite doing well in their lives are finding ways to put a smile on someones face.Such people are special by all means and their action awe inspiring.A big cheer to all the hearts full of kindness!
