[tab id=1]Still, they trudge on
Desperation and hope pushing them forward
Dry throats and tired feet
Aches from stomachs churning with bile

Still, they trudge on
Voices trying to reach somebody
Who would listen
Responses vile with taunting
“Entitled and lazy” they cry

And still, they trudge on

Aleya Rampararsad Banwari is an undergraduate student at UCT, she is an intersectional feminist, a tea lover, and scrawls words down in the form of poetry when they come to her.[/tab]
