So innocent,so tender,
With a heart as rich as a lender.
I am indeed special,
Wish I was protected like a pearl in a shell.
I am a boon,it’s said,
Then why am I so exploited?
In industries,in malls,
At houses and at stalls
I am made to toil hard,
Physically and mentally harassed.
Why do you want to put an end to my laughter?
By making me a slave to some master.
Can you not see the pain in my eye?
Even I want to live with the freedom to fly.
I don’t want to be a labour,
Please do something in my favour.
With a ray of hope,I plead,
Kindly be my shield.
Save me from those wicked hands,
Save children like me in all lands.
