Future Of The Country - Poem by Sneha Khedkar

Tears in the eyes,
Fear on the face,
I often see children working,
Roads being there workplace.

Unwillingly doing work,
By the fear of being scolded
Or beaten by their employers
I see children working for bread.

Messy hair, torn clothes,
Children walking bare feet
And working really hard
Not caring about the rain or heat.

Children doing all sorts of jobs
Including selling and begging.
I have also seen children
Cleaning cars for an earning.

I feel sorry for them.
I feel it is very unfair,
That people make children work
When they should take their care.

Children are delicate,
We must care for them.
For every child in the world
Is as precious as a gem.

At least thinking about the country,
We must stop child labour.
We must stop burdening the children
As they are the country's future.
