Lost Childhood

100204_96300970 Childhood the carefree days of roaming around with friends and doing absolutely nothing and whatever your heart desires.But for those children stuck in poverty childhood holds totally opposite meaning. Working everyday to receive two unsatisfying meals and scraping through heaps of  garbage to find one defective shoe and no hope of a better tomorrow. Accept the unfair life they don’t deserve and see others living a  fair life they don’t deserve.Wanting to go to school but instead work in shady places.So many responsibilities on such tiny shoulders.Sacrificing their happiness for their family’s survival.

LOST CHILDHOOD

Childhood once lost never returns

The child gives up his carefree ways to enter this Darwin’s world

All the while  his innocence and virtue burns

Living on others hand me downs from broken glasses to expired bread

Helping mom and dad taking turns

Living on streets like the forgotten old toys

Childhood once lost never returns.
