GIRL CHILD’S PLEA

Listen to my cry mama
Head to my plea
Take your precious time
And listen to my humble request mama
A genuine cry from the heart
Expressing how much it hurts
To miss an essential need
Which i am entitled to
Listen mama
And save me from pain
So that i may gain

Show love to me mama
Express care to your only girl child
Treasure me for once
Hail me high and make me feel okey
Look at my cute face
Wasting and rusting rapidly
My once soft and tender palms
Continously cracking and aging
Toiling from morning to evening
Working for a meagre pay
Burning and scothing everyday
Under the hot sun rays
Please mama find a way
And save me from this jail

Swallow the pride mama
Put on a human heart
And deliver me from this mess
Let me not hurt
In this tea plantations
That is burrying my dreams far deep
This task is too hard and difficult
For my young age

It is so painful dear mama
My heart bleeds terribly
When i see fellow girl children
Growing in women of substance
While am wasting in this hell
Of child labour
Redeem me dear mama
Give me a pen and a book
Take me to school
let me realise my dream
And become a woman of substance
