A curtain and a boy

This is a poem inspired from a sepia pic Abhishek Padhye (my friend, chief-ed and confidant) took in an orphanage in Jamshedpur. See the pic and then read the poem for full effect.

Do you hide from me
My little child or,
Are you trying
Not to look

In half a mood,
To be left alone
And in half a mood,
To be found

But you should know,
My little child,
Even when you hide
For all to see

The world is busy
Looking for itself
And no one,
Looks for you
