The Pain Of Slavery - Poem by Rosie Bourget
Beating, rape and subjugation
Slavery is a horrible memory
An ugly page in our history
Who are we supposed to blame?
We've been through many things
We wish they could understand
And measure our pain
To make themselves look good in front of their families
They can make millions of apologies
That will not solve anything!
Nor that will it alleviate our humiliations
The inhuman conditions
And the sufferings and pain
They have caused for their profit and gain
Having been tortured for a whole life
It's hard to overcome this life style
We would like to have a reason to smile!
In the 21st century mist
Slavery still exists
There are more people enslaved today
Than at any time in history
The most common form slavery!
Is, human trafficking operations
Forced into prostitution
Domestic work in harsh conditions
Today, with booming populations
And staggering poverty
Millions of children and adults are given or stolen!
Each of us can make ethical decisions
To help stop slavery
People of conscience need to awaken
To denounce and act against
All forms of modern slavery
In a so-called modern society!
