Somewhere a child dreams
of the happy years
What shall I be, who shall
love me

Years later on a squalid
a child gives what she 
never had

now a child screams
crying falls upon deaf ears
What have I come to
where is the love
I never knew

Alone she wonders
how it would be
if she were home
at once joyful and free...

Human Trafficking is a subject close to my heart. I had never heard of it until a few years ago, then I watched the movie "Human Trafficking" with Donald Sutherland and was struck by how easily even the smart and savvy among us are taken in by these thugs. I knew that I in my younger days would have succumbed also. It is heartbreaking. This are was inspired by that movie it has been years since I have seen it but I will never be able to forget it.
