as a young growing girl, i wish i knew that i had to be content with what i have
i wish i knew that the little my parents gave me was just enough what i needed
i wish i knew that i cannot be like my friends, that they were who they were and i am who i am
i wish i knew that i did not have to please my friends ro do what they wanted me to do
i wish i knew that all what the gentleman was telling me was not true
i wish i knew that what my parents were telling was because they wanted the best for me
what did i get from that?
fatherless unhealthy children
no good sleeping place, no job to take care of my children
where is that gentleman who promised me heaven and earth?
now i bite my fingers and regret for the wasted time
i bow down my head when i see my classmates
it is too too late for me
