Reason For Early School Dropouts In The Rural Village-Srilanka

By Shereen Esther J 

Reason for early school dropouts in the rural village-Srilanka

The poor knows not where to turn
when they don’t have a proper way to earn,
families are filled with hunger and conflicts
in the stress of their lack they do not know where to fix.

Education for the village is a trouble
when they have problems as double,
the male and female the falling teenage
will never know what to do at their age.

When parents fight and lack
the kid’s mind goes in search of sack
filled with tears and fear,
which never will disappear.

Children go astray at their young age
Parents don’t care at that stage,
tears flow fears grow
none will know what they go through as they go.
