What IF?

While I was on my way home from school, I saw some kids playing along boulevard. I don’t want to label them as beggars because we are all equal in the eyes of God. I was just wondering IF their parents still care for them? IF what will happen to them in the future?

What will happen to me IF I was in their shoes? What would my life would be? Definitely, it won’t be the same as what kind of life I have now. But still, there’s the feeling that I want to experience what kind of life do they have. I kinda have some idea on how it feels to live a life like theirs because I had the chance to mingle some of them when I was in High School. We do the “exposure thingy” then wherein we were tasked to visit families in urban areas.

I just realized that I am still fortunate because I have a better life. But kinda sad knowing that we can deny the fact that there are still who suffers from poverty. Argh!

Someday, I’ll be able to help these people. I want them to finish their studies and have a better life. It’s not too late though. But if it is, it’s better late than never.
