What would you do if you were working in a sweatshop ?

In my class we had to write a recount from the perspective (view) of a child working in a sweatshop. I chose to be a kid working in a clothing factory.

I was learning to use descriptive words and phrases to enhance the mood of fear or sadness.
I was successful because I got it done in time and I used descriptive language in my writing.
What I found easy was I knew what to right because it was all about the mood of sadness.

A Day At The Clothing Factory
On a early Monday morning I got out of bed and went to work. It was so dark I couldn’t see properly. I was so tired that I really wanted to go back to sleep but my boss wouldn’t let me. I had to stay up during the day.
Afterwards my boss came to see what the children were doing I was sewing clothes while everybody else was doing the same thing.  Nine hours later, I could smell all the nasty fumes going past me in the factory. I couldn’t stand it. I felt like I was going to faint. The other children that were in there looked sad and dirty. Kids: were wearing dirty clothing, some kids didn’t even had t - shirts or shoes just like me. When the buzzer rung all I had to eat was a bowl of rice. I only sat their for like three minutes and didn’t have time to eat my bowl of rice. So I had to hurry and shoved my rice in my face before my boss sees me.
At 11:00 pm I couldn’t stay here much longer I just needed to go outside to get some fresh air but instead of going out there I had to stay in and smell the fumes. Sew clothing and shoes,  It was tiring I just couldn’t handle those fumes.
Hours later it was almost time for me to go and have a rest.  “I don’t want to work. It’s just too hard”. Shang Wu said“But that’s the only thing you can do i’m afraid unless you have a better idea”. I replied“Huh so I guess I just have to stay here until my work is over?”.
Finally it was 8:00pm. When I walked out of the factory I finally got to have some fresh air and have some rest. “It is 8:00 pm I can finally go home to sleep”. I am so exhausted after working so hard in that factory. I want a good rest after sewing all those clothes. I couldn’t want anything more than having a good night sleep.
