Its long, A really long story, One of furry and glory, Pain and gain, Tears and spears, A story of die and lie. Born in times so low, Mother passed and i felt an empty glow, Days only ruined and i felt the flow, The sun beat and i felt the blow, Father took to his drink and staggered all day, I uttered nothing because i just had no say. School became harder, Life tougher, I could feel the rain beat, I missed mother and cling to memories, Father only took to his drink, But thank God i cleared high school. I took to the farm, Poverty looked at me and said come, But i endured and built a heart like a lion, Someday i strolled home, I found a gathering so rare, Only to realise later, That i was to be married off, And when i said no, Father disowned me, And to the streets i took. Only days of desparation in the streets, To raise a coin was so hard, And so i gave my body, Played all the bad games, Only later to realise am pregnant, A child was born, And food was to be provided, Care and love, And i was also too small a child. Days in the streets beat, Every other dawn i could feel the heat, Clothes became smaller and none could fit, I had given my body and everyone was invited, My clients cruel and dumpy, But the little money i raised, I vow to return to school, It was never easy, Its a long story. But now i am here ten years down, With my child every dawn, Life has given me a reason to smile, Good people showed and school i cleared, So bright i was and only the best did i seek, Only if mother could take a witness to this, Its just a long story, And as this plane lands, I am off work, To this country abroad, To just take a vacation, Silent days, As i look back!
