i was born in sufferation and poverty. even today i still suffer because i am unable to afford certain things, and when you ask people for assistance they try to demean you before they offer help.

i suffer for

I was born a sufferer
I suffer for the basic things of life
Which many take for granted

I suffer for food, clothing and shelter
I suffer for love, life
And the hope that things will be better

I`m a sufferer
I’m hungry and poor
I need help but I’m ignored
I called to you every day that passed me by
With my saliva drenched mouth
And my tearful eyes

Sufferer, yes, i`m a sufferer
Some say life is sweet
But I can`t taste it
Because it`s been too long since
I ate a meal

Barefoot and ragged these streets
I tread looking for bread
I was born a sufferer
I will have to suffer
Till i`m dead


Barefoot And Ragged, Bread, Dead, Every Day, Hungry And Poor, Life Is Sweet, Meal, Saliva Drenched Mouth, Tearful Eyes, These Streets

Some do suffer for no fault of theirs. But we should never lose hope. There are kind souls everywhere to lend a hand - siva
