Child Labor - Poem by alicia white

Hopeful eyes, happy smiles
Soft hands, million dreams
Is this not the identity of a child?
Then why do i see 
Tear filled eyes, terrified faces
Rough hands, and shattered dreams

Deprived of their childhood
Overloaded with work
Burdened with responsibility
At such a young age.  

So much to learn 
So much to accomplish 
But not given enough time
Fight for a cause 
Raise your voice 
Stop child labor

Put a smile back on their face
Give them the childhood
That was stollen from them
Fight for a cause 
Raise your voice 
STOP CHILD LABOR
