Raising Flowers at Home

She was 11 years old, she was selling flowers on the streets, she wanted money to buy food and water. She would hear the worst of words, but she wouldn’t tell her parents how the streets treat their daughter. She would say I wish I went to school, and asks why do kids have to work?

These tough conditions make children face a tough life, but now she’s home with her mother. She was selling flowers and now she raises these same flowers. Why this labor, why? Tell me Why oh Why?
