Every day, I get up and go to school. Hunger surrounds the high school. Hunger in the morning-- skipped breakfast because I got up late because I was up late working on homework. No money for lunch. I spend the day hungry. I don’t qualify for free lunch. My stomach rumbles.

I am the hungry. But you won’t feed me.

I take the tests to merit federal funding.

I am hungry and tired. I am not being treated like a human being-- I am being treated like a product. A commodity item sitting on a shelf.

Thank you for the concern! My parents are amazing, and definately not jail-worthy.

 

But "hunger" was metaphorical. It's addressing the "hunger" to learn something other than what's on the state-mandated curriculum in the state that I live in.

If your parents aren't giving you money for food, they should be put in jail! That's child abuse.
