Wordle#2 Blessing in Disguise

We are destined like this
She whispered in his ears
To console her younger brother
She wiped his ceaseless tears

Their daily chores start with
washing dishes and ferry bricks
Under the sunlight among silent whines
There is a dream lying, close to kick

There is a strange rhyme he listen 
In those green paddy fields
None but of his heart
 To learn and read

How difficult it is to give up
On dreams and forget ''to wish'' 
Engraving notes on the bare land
He don't want to see their fate wicked

We will read no matter what
She said hugging him tight
Perhaps, the courage 
out of hard times was 
a blessing in disguise
