From A 3rd World Country


I lived in a 3rd world country
but that does not mean
i've got nothing to say
Coz we also grow in our own way

Third world countries
may be poor economically
but we excel in different abilities
plus we are also rich naturally

First world countries
may be hi in technolohies
but 3rd world countries
have hardworking employess

We even excel in different fileds
either in medical, singting or sports
as our nurses, singers or boxers
are demanding in all places

Though I didn't live in a 1st world
but I'm proud to be in a 3rd world
bec. it is the only place
where i feel a belongingness

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
