GOD YOU’RE MY SAVIOR
Who would i call
When I’m abut to fall
Who would I look for
When no one’s there for sure
Who would be my light
When someone’s darkening my sight
Who would set my feet on the ground
When I’m still profound
Who would place the stars in the skies
To bring happiness to my eyes
Who would hold my hand
When I’m drowning on the pond
Who would take me out of my shell
To let them know the things I couldn’t tell
Who would stop the rain
When it’s killing my brain
Who would lend their ears
When I’m dropping litters of tears
Who would answer my questions
And love me without options
Lord God You’re my savior
Who loved me even before I was labored
You never stopped loving me
And it keeps on growing like the fruits of the tree
You loved me first
And saved me from the curse
You opened the door
And let me step on your floor
Oh, Lord you’re my God
When I look at you nothing’s bad
For you all things are possible
You’re so indescribable
When you were at your young age, were you eating delicious food three times a day? Lying on a comfortable bed? Having laptops, cell phones and other gadgets? Well, if you were, you are a fortunate child, a very fortunate one.
Child labor is one of the many concerns in the Philippines and, most disturbingly, one of the most rampant problems we face. Child labor is defined as working so hard at young age to have something to eat and something for a living.
Child labor is one of the effects of poverty. Because of poverty the children are forced by their parents to go out in the busy streets and work all day long instead of going to school and be a child at least once in their lives.
Child labor is not an easy issue to resolve; while it seems noble to immediately withdraw investments and cooperation with firms and factories that employ child labor it may do more harm than good. Many of these children are from very poor families and work to pay for their family and/or their education. Depriving them of this income has led to some children seeking different, lower paid work, even prostitution in some cases.
I know that you’ve seen a lot of children work in farming fields, mining shafts, garbage dumpsites, and peddling in the busy and dangerous streets. It’s not easy for them to work because these children have weak bodies for they don’t eat enough daily, and their bodies are too small for their jobs like lifting heavy things and walk for a thousand miles.
Every child has the right to the most basic necessities in life like a healthy environment, formal education, and most importantly, a loving family to come home to. These rights are not given to them properly.
Let’s help these children live the lives that they should have. Let’s put a stop to child labor. Let’s make them happy for a person can only be a child once.
