Sold

By 4th September 2009December 9th, 2019No Comments

I was sold when I was ten
To feed my brothers and sisters,
My mummy said
It had to be that way.

They took me to a strange place
To the place where the Soldiers slept
Where me and Victoria who is my friend
Would sell our trinkets and ourselves
When I was Ten
