most of the time, it goes like this.

~~~

He woke up 
And went outside and took a bath

In the dark

The wind is cold and it seem rain

may come early this year

At the table, he had nothing to think

Putting a hard pie in his mouth

Drunk a glass of tap water 

After an hour, he was on the road

Walking all the way to his school

Often times, he stopped and breath

Throwing his gazed in the sky

Then he walked again for hours

He feel tired but he had too

At the class

Some students were laughing

Had nothing to worry on their lives

They circles themselves 

Admiring each other

Far in the corner, he pretends 

To be reading

He had nothing to share

Much better to stay away

The bell rung and everybody were calling for their mom or their dad to pick them up

And he went outside the gate solely

He didn’t opened his mouth 

And most of the time…

It goes like this —

And he went at the parking lot 

And work instead of opening a book

To write and sing or play

Sweeping the glass of every car for just a piece of coin

It’s already 9 in the evening and the road is empty

He thrown his gaze in the stars

Before he headed into their house

He removed his slippers and went 

At the table. The same pie he ate at this early, still he grabbed it 

And drunk the tap water from the pail

Went into his bed

In the dark he pretended to be asleep

When his father walked and sat beside at the bed. Tired from the construction site

Put a blanket on him and kiss his cheek and went to the next room

And he opened his eyes

Looked at the window rain 

Fell outside

He looked at it, how far he could

Escape

A mosquito hover and bit him hard

His father snoring in the dark

He prayed silently before he closed his eye, life can be ironic 

And most of time —

It simply goes like this…

Kids in the Philippines live in a tropical, mostly mountainous nation of more than 7,000 islands. All those islands mean gorgeous beaches and breathtaking views, but this country also experiences a wide range of natural disasters, from typhoons and landslides, to volcanoes, to earthquakes and tsunamis. Both the government and the economy of the Philippines are stable. But poverty persists in both the cities and remote islands. Kids growing up on the smaller islands don’t get enough food to eat or clean water to drink, and many can’t go to school. But poverty isn’t the only concern. Typhoons hit the Philippines multiple times every year. Because we want to help with immediate needs, Feed the Children has given relief over the last four years to 11,775 families affected by natural disasters. And while we’re meeting immediate needs, we’re also building futures. Tapping into and building on people’s strengths, our Child-Focused Community Development approach helps them take care of themselves in the future.
