Hello pearlypeeps! Howdy? So last night, my younger sister read out a poem she wrote to me and I was really impressed. It was an assignment where she was required to write a poem on the topic ‘Child Abuse’ and I liked it so much I decided to share it with you guys. She’s quite young by the way, 11yrs old and she’s pretty amazing, trust me. I hope you enjoy it too…here it is
Children hawking on the streets
While gawking at the surroundings
Looking sad and oppressed
Wondering when they will rest.
Children being assaulted
Not knowing what to do
Out of fear they say nothing
Not even a person to talk to.
Children being beaten badly
When nothing they have done
Wondering when this will end
Wondering who would be their savior
Is this to be our fate?
When assaulted, beaten and oppressed
But we do have hope,
That one day our story would change
