Fifteen years ago, somewhere in the deep,
our fathers made some vows they couldn't keep,
they acted so cheap, and what they sow we now reap,
they tempered with the dead in attempt to make our lives great,
promising sacrifices they never had, to the gods of human fate,
that's why poverty came into our lives to even the score,
to stomp our big name up the cliff and down to the sea shore,
now we plough an enormous field yet obtain an ant's harvest,
and surviving a season on those 2bags of grain is the hardest,
that's right, poverty is a curse, and can make the drunkard sober,
and also leave fellow village members scared to come closer,
so the suffering is ours only, me, my lil sister and my 2brothers,
we can seat in an empty house and just stare at each other,
no jokes no words but inner grief and curses to our fore fathers,
the morning arrives early and our stomachs cry,
no food to touch, but a million questions why why why...
Outside the house the ground's dry, farming? Who would even try,
it's like healing rain is denied to fall for us by the wicked sky,
Our only option is finding peace jobs, to get that little money,
just to survive for that day rather than sleeping hungry,
but all posts are taken, maybe if only we could've have hurried,
we could've saved ourselves the pain of staying stressed and worried,
so the curse and suffering goes on til we find favor someday,
till the gods have seen our afflicion and uplift this undeserved pain.
