Childhood once lost,
In the hands of poverty,
wilt wither and fall,
just like a flower

como la flor.

Seeing these girls playing in the field would have been a pleasant sight rather than seeing them working.

  1. We sometimes face bad times in our lives, but still they are rarely a ‘child-labouring-in-the-fields’ level bad.
    Makes me realize that no matter how many hardships I face, I’m still privileged enough that I don’t have to worry about about getting my next meal.
