THE STRUGGLE OF AN AFRICAN CHILD BY AZUKA CHINONSO IGWEGBE
Sam, an industrious young boy was born in the wretched family of Joe and Kate. He knew if he would fulfill his destiny he must not walk through the valley of excuses. To conquer his fear he admitted his weakness.
His struggle started when he was little. He faced a lot of challenges and battles but he found strength in his weakness where others ran away. He laughed at his fear.
His pride was the color of his skin. His determination was the beauty of his identity. His tears guaranteed his comfort and his hard work earned him honor. Despite his challenges as a poor African child, the air of joy that pervaded around him was infectious.
Sam suffered sunstroke in the angry heat. He hawked in the streets, roads and market to make ends meet. He nearly froze in the cold rain in the streets trying to keep his family happy. He thought he might drown in the floods as he ran every day from corner to corner looking for people that would ease his pain.
To put a smile on the face of his family, he had to wake up early to hustle. Everyday he watched the night bid farewell to the moon not knowing when his suffering would end. Sam sacrificed his life, education and whatever gave him joy for his family.
