In the Third World | Poem

Before the eyes of a young adult

In her fatherland, aΒ third-worldly scene:

Happiness in the eyes of the child,

Despite the despair that surrounds.

Poor young bodies and hearts,

Braced for what comes next.

Contentment in the hard-worker’s life

In spite of that feeling of indignation.

Β At the bottom of that triangle,

Survival comes day by day.

Good-natured smiles in the face of a local,

Regardless of his life’s reality.

Anticipation comes that one day,

The triangle is nothing but a shape.

The last time I attempted writing a poem was in high school so please bear with me. This is my second post for the year! Yay! Feedbacks are absolutely welcome!
