Falll And Rise - Poem by Merina Dahal

I am a child,
Working in the industry
Daily suffering and suffocating and
Living my life in misery

Got a lot of work to do
Living in the world of sorrows
Inner heart speaks of the hope i bore
But still then tears roll down my eye thinking of my family and fellows

Only word I speak is,
Yes master, No master, Ok master
But hey I am not a dog not a dog not a dog
Its a sad sad day when the light comes up and its a sad sad night when the night emerges

I am desolate
My desires and desperate feeling are suppressed
I have fallen
But i still move ahead hoping a day to rise

And suddenly I saw a light
That penetrates thorough the devils eyes
Now no more I lie I will fight, I will fight
Until I rise

Poet's Notes about The Poem

one month back when i was visiting market with my dad, on the way i saw a boy working in the industry nearby and i created this poem keeping him on my mind and reflecting it in this poem as my first try.
