Every job is noble

Maybe, this young girl's job below is not your average dream job, or even side job. But for some, this is at least a legal and decent way, or even, the only way to make a living. If it were you, would you feel ashamed to work as she did while your friends passes you by? Would you still held your head high?

The photos below about a young girl mascot was spreading in internet forums in China, and has been a public discussion. The sender claimed to be a professional photographer, and immortalised the hard work of this girl mascot silently through his lens during the Guangzhou Auto Show last year.

maskolis gadis maskot

I dedicate this to her (and all those who is working hard to earn a healthy living everyday)

Millions of people passing through.
Some were hasty and swift,
some were strolling slowly by.
But out of so many, do they see me?

I wore a suit not cos i've things to hide,
I wore a suit, with all my might.
There's even a mask for me to wear,
a mask, that's suppose to make everyone stare.

With my full suit on, i'm ready to go,
to welcome everyone, to greet every soul.
I might have to walk, stand, pose and wave,
but it's worth it, when i see the smile on their faces.

Ah, it's been hours and hours now,
the comfy suit is almost like steaming clouds.
I quietly find a deserted space,
took of the mask, and wipe my face.

"Hi, so it's you wearing this,
all these while I thought  its a 'He'",
The cleaner auntie took me by surprise,
I gave a friendly smile, while I looked her in the eye.

"Another 5 minute," I told myself quietly.
Hoping to dry off the sweat, with the soft soothing wind.
Though it's hard and hot and stuffed,
but to earn a living, I know it has to be rough.

A sophisticated lady passed me by,
I gazed up, with a glow in my eye.
When would it be my turn to shine?
Would it be tomorrow? Or is it tonight?

With a deep long breath, I stood up and smile.
A job is waiting, lets make it worthwhile.
I might not be, the car showgirl on the side,
but I promised myself, I'll always keep my head held high!

(This poem was written based on the pictures below, in dedication to the unknown mascot girl)
