The Delhiwallah Poetry Collective brings the Young Poets feature that publishes young poets including school and college students.
Some walls and barren land,
When put together
Make a house, plain and bland.
It's the beautiful souls,
That make the house a heaven
Who understand the words,
We haven't even spoken.
The comfort and peace,
Provided by our home,
It's nowhere to be found
May go to Paris or through Rome.
It doesn't matter if it's a bungalow,
Or a simple room
People who know how to be happy,
Will suffice, even under a leaking roof.
