My name is Crispin and I am a serf during the Medieval time period in Europe. This means I have to grow crops for the nobles to get protection. My mother passed away and live all by myself.
It is difficult to be a serf on a farm because I have to work all day long . I do so in a field owned by the lord. I don't have any breaks except for church. I have to work in all different types of weather.
Every Sunday I am forced by the nobles to go to church. If I don't attend church i will be executed by the nobles. Serfs, knights, lords, ladies and the king all attend. I am taught in church that if you do not follow the teachings you will go to hell.
As a serf, I am not a free person. This means that I am always running from the authorities. I was chased through the woods one time because i was seen out of town and this is against the rules. While I was running I fell down on a rock and hit my head. It was very painful but I wasn't caught.
When I returned home I knew that I would be caught by my lord . My head was hurting and I was in pain.
As you can see, the life of a serf is very hard. This is a very unfair system.
