    Extremely sad painful portrayal of the situation. Only God knows as to how and when things will change and the evil of human trafficking will end once and for all. Thanks.
    in the hopes that we will find
    all the values we left behind.

    I can't see anything else being any more devastating then a parent ruining a childs soul. It sometimes make them to be more aware and tough but more then enough it seems to produce generations of broken relationships. (Report)Reply

    young children being forced into prostitution
    and not one country with a solution.
    parents selling their children to get out of debt
    just to make ends meet
    a problem which they can not defeat.

    To enslave another is a huge step down for the perpetrator of the crime. He or she has sunk below the human level of living. By not recognizing the sacredness of the soul of the enslaved they dam their own souls in the process.Your poem is a wake up call to this side of the world that we hear about often enough.One would have thought that slavery ended in the bad old days.10.

    the very first stanza grabs you into the poem...and this a shame..not at all humane...the young mind dies once it has gone through this..and its perpective on life becomes very negative after that (Report)Reply
