poverty through the eyes of a slave!

poverty through the eyes of a slave!

A Screenplay by Boldapple

what we take for granted

one big glass of milk/juice every morning,
100 dollars in the back packet for immaterial use,
going to the theater every friday to watch a new movie,
stealing someones boyfriend/girlfriend when the eyes spot a good chance,
sitting on the dinner table complaining why mama cooked this or that,
going to school and criticizing everyday for something as usual (teacher, classmate, homework, time...),
stressing out cuz work is hard or don't pay as much,
getting angry at parents and siblings for making their life miserable,
staying up till 2am while talking to friends on msn/facebook/etc..
listening to loud music in their own cars while watching the poor begging on the streets,
.. this is all.. what a slave would not do.

you know why, cuz his life is based on simple needs:
eat what he can,
sleep without a plan,
learn what he could,
try to live in a peaceful hood,
and live on thinking each day is better than no food.
