Music Challenge #28, The Daily Post – Assumption

I came to work abroad 
at an early age
a lifetime opportunity
to feed my family 
three meals a day!
a glimmer of hope
and means to survive
from the poverty class
for the rest of my life!

I was told to be stupid
and not act smart
I am an extra pair of hand
to do what they want!
I cannot be sick 
and cannot be sad
I had to switch off my emotions
as I was being paid!

Life as a helper 
working abroad
is a playing field
with bounces and kicks!
I send my family 
photos of me
assumption free
when I get a day off
beautifully dressed
but cry pretty!

  1. I love your take. Itโ€™s hard to keep yourself bottled inside that much. Iโ€™m sorry you experienced that. I guess if we donโ€™t Cry Pretty, at least we feel better after. Thanks for participating ๐Ÿ™‚
