Child Labour

Child labour, child labour, child labour!
Child labour is very bad
Child labour is hard work
Child labour can cause health problems
Dear parents and friends
Kindly stop child labour

In my childhood stage
As a girl of five years old
Forced to cook, washing big dishes
Sweeping large compounds
Ohh.. Young little girl
Thin and powerless but carrying heavy stuff
Hurting and damaging soft body
Wounds and Scars all over my body
Dear parents and friends
Brothers and sisters
Stop child labour
