1 . Due to the rise of the second industrial revolution after the depression in 1870s , urban life was promising and appealing enough for me to pack up my bags and headed to the city to live and work . It ‘s not that I gave up on country life and forgot all about my roots . In fact my life in the farm was considered a true joy by my parents . Not only was I there physically for them , but I could not deny even for myself that my hands have also brought profit for the [banner_entry_middle]

family . I was sad for leaving , but they understood pretty well how idealism claws hard and deep on the heart of someone young . They believed in me , and that was all that matters then to leave the only place I have ever known

I was excited when I arrived in the city one Thursday morning . The sight I saw proved that there could be hope there . Everybody was doing something .

I did not plan to work for the furniture shop for long . My family back home knew about my dreams and aspirations . I said I was going to get a job first and worked it out from there . I knew I could not rely on Mr Smith ‘s pay forever . I have rent to pay , food to buy , and big plans for the future . Plans , which include a comfortable and safe house for my own family to live one day and maybe enough money to travel , buy a land of my own , and retire in the country . I also made a promise to myself that I would never allow any of my children to grow and enter into society… [banner_entry_footer]
