Meet Great.

14-year old Great* is from Nigeria.

Here is the poem written by Great.

Circumstances of Life.

In the shadows of my life I see most hopes are beginning to be lost because of the treatment embedded on you.

nevermind sorrows that may last for a night

but joy comes in the morning.

You wont be slaughtered like a goat in an abattoir.

Remember all hopes are not lost.

Keep going you are safe you won’t be misfortune like a goat.
