Amidst the small shanty and the squalor ,
The overflowing waste and the dirt .
There is a little garden of vegetables ,
planted to sustain those there in the pandemic ...
A place where women spend hours talking ,
while watering the plants ,
or cutting the daily harvest .
A place where sharing and giving to everyone ,
is accepted without any fights.
Everyone knows who gets what.
The men also use it often,
as a meeting place ,
They make sure to get good soil , dig timely too,
so the harvest is aplenty ...
The young kids planted,
a patch of pretty flowers ,
Growing even prettier this summer ..
In the middle of their story of struggle ,
here is their own Garden of Eden .
Here only love persists and a new world is daily born .
Welcome to Paradise .
