Oh When I Was Born

by Rashid Peters, Student of iEARN Sierra Leone

When I was born

No one told me

I would be captured at 10

To show early muscles

In the lion's den

But soon I became 10

I'm forced to lay down my pen

And learnt soon

How to dodge a bomb blast

And to make a whole family never last
