You wake in the dark and it’s cold.
You walk forty five minutes to school, dodging traffic on busy dirt roads.
You’re hungry but that doesn’t stop you from arriving to class on time.
You sit at a crowded table with your peers- trying to find space for your flimsy notebook.
You eat the same meal at school – fortified porridge – but never complain.
You are resilient.
You have courage.
And you’re the one giving me strength to keep moving forward.
