Walking across the youth
I could only watch when,
children my age circled around
the joys of life,
the vibrancy of adolescence;
I was destined to
stand under the blazing sun,
long hours passing as,
hands pained against the hard metals
When the rest of the world adorned their hands
with technologies and luxuries,
my hands clutched into drills and hammers.
No complains and no regrets but,
only prayers that my siblings
get the life I wished for..
The sun passing to take its rest
but my time continues
as long as mind and body stay up
rest is on the other side of my world!
