A young boy coal miner

  1. 1. A Young Boy Coal MinerThere he stands. Just a child and yeta man. Instead of drawing figures on chalkboards he dragscoal in the darkest hole, hoping to find more yet praying to seesunlight.He is so very young, still scrawny and not that tall.He should be in school, learning how to read, and how to spell,But instead he is learning about adulthood.For he works in the darkest hole, called a mine.He stays there long hours, not seeing the sun.He is eaten by the tiniest, darkest hole,to light explosives.Sometimes, his co-workers, who are just children and yet adultsdo not make it, because the darkness eats them.He has learned, what it is like to see people die,and tries his best to cope with the loss.
  2. 2. Just look at him:exhausted, hopeless,Why has he traded his childhood to the devil?He has traded his childhood of swimming in the lake,and drawing with chalk, because he has to help support his family;for they live in fear of losing the house,and not having enough money to buy food.Sometimes they do go to bed, with a monster in their stomachs.Plus, there is no law to ban this trade with the devil.Hopefully, one day the devil will be stopped,so that children can have a childhood of playing in the woods,swimming in the lake, fishing, and drawing with chalk,instead of working in mines.
