Life on streets

I bet you’re enjoying life,

with phones and technology,

but have you ever thought how I feel,

lying randomly on dirty streets?

Everyday I wake up,

hoping for something good,

but then my stomach grumbles,

in a desperate need of food.

There’s nothing I can do,

except wait,

until gangsters take me away,

now, at the age of eight.

Let me tell you,

there are 1 billion children like me,

waiting in the world,

to have a family and be free.

I know people are out there,

somewhere safe in shelter,

but please save me,

just send a helper…

Homelessness is one of the worst forms of violence.

Save children’s lives from being destroyed.

Hi! I am a 13-year-old currently studying in the Netherlands. For 5 years, I was studying in London and moved to India for some time in July 2019. First of all, I love playing the western flute and have been playing for quite a few years now. Playing and also, listening to music is definitely my passion. Some sports I enjoy playing are badminton, netball, swimming, football, cricket (these are the top 5!). Ok, so let’s talk about poetry. I wrote my first poem in a primary school in England and this inspired me to start writing poems on WordPress. Some of my recent poems are about global issues such as climate change, depression, bullying etc. Writing poetry is another passion of mine…so, check out my poems on WordPress. I don’t know what else I could say here so, hope you love my poems…..happy reading!!
