Oh! People… just listen to our stories.

What a strong body we have, carrying a lot of

load without any fame.
What a strong heart we have,

no one just listens to our beats.
Plastic metal goes in our eyes

But who will listen to our cries?
No pen to write, no bags no books

Dreamy eyes,but no hope to wipe.
Oh! People just listen Why are we suffering?

What is our crime?
People want money they want power

Don’t care if they make children cower.
People are forcing children to work in

factories and markets
When school should be their only workplace

and pencil should be their only tool.
We are starving and trembling.

Oh! People have the courage to Raise your voice
To help those in need.
