Looking for a job. (after M. Gold)

When I was twelve, I was one of the best pupils at public school.
My parents were proud of me. They wanted me to go to high school. I refused to go to high school.
There were four children in my family. My mother could not work. Could my father get the money for all of us? Of course, not. Miss Barry, an English teacher, tried to get me to go to high school, But I told her that my father was unable to support me I would have to work. She asked me to promise her to study. I told her that I would, though I knew it was a lie. But I loved books, I was carried away by many books, I wanted very much to go to highschool and college. Miss Barrypresented me with a book. I thanked her for it and threw it. I told myself that I hated books, that they were lies and were different from life.
It was not easy to find my first job. I looked for it for months.
At last I found a job. It was in a factory. The place was dark and hot, the air was poisoned. I forgot my college hopes, I could not sleep at night. My mother made me leave the job.
Months passed before I found another job, this time in a printing shop. Then it was a job in a shop, at a chemists. Jobs. Jobs. I went from one to another without plan, without hope. I was at a loss what to do.
One day I stopped to listen to a man who was speaking about the struggle for a better life. The words brought hope to me and made me think, struggle and live. It was the great beginning for me. (300 words)/
