Little Girl from the Slums

Little Girl from the Slums

Little girl from the slums

With your shiny eyes

And brave smile

Carrying water on your head

You are not in need

Of false sympathies, are you?

Self gratifying words of pity

All you are asking for

Is not to be stripped from your dreams

A single fighting chance

One pencil, one book, one school

To color your future

As you see fit
