Children of Cambodia (2)

A picture of another child I met in Cambodia and something I wrote about him:

You must have been posted here by your parents
To make a living
By saying ‘hello’ to those strangers
And offering joss sticks to them
In exchange of some donations
Your blank stare
Your feeble voice
And the way you shrank in the corner
All showed that maybe you would much rather be somewhere else
Doing something normal children would do

(To be continued)
