Child Soldier
I am a child soldier.
Every day is filled with misery.
Seeing my friend and family dying.
Every day is filled with being abused and neglected.
Over 900,000 of us have become victim to being neglected and beaten.
One of us dies every second.
Poverty fills our country and hatred takes over.
Every day is filled with fear and not knowing if I will live or die.
There is no peace in my world.
Only strife.
I don’t choose this job.
I don’t ask for it.
But I am it.
I am a child soldier.
