Life is Sweet and Sour

by Baraka Adaodat Juliette aged 17

Life starts when you are in your mother’s womb,
May you never notice when you disrespect her,
Hurt them, insult them, deny them,
Maybe this is how life is, what you have today is not tomorrow.

When you don’t treasure what you have now
You end up suffering all your lifetime,
They say you don’t know the importance of water until the river dries,
This time you have to prove your haters wrong, and let them know.
