“In All Actuality” by Sarah Godlewski


In All Actuality

Childhood is not always all fun and games
Not every child gets to experience their childhood
some have to grow up quickly
Others don't even get a chance to grow up

In All Actuality

There are children that have to help pay the bills
Some kids only have one parent
And that makes it harder
There are children that even have to drop out of school

In All Actuality

There are few kids who are privileged
Compared to the millions who have families just scraping by
In Other Countries kids are having babies and getting married
when they are barely teenagers- most don't have a choice
