The Killing of Innocence

What invades a persons head
or even within their heart
if they indeed have one
where does this all start?

The killing of a child's innocence
taking advantage of one so young
using them for selfish gain
what indeed can be done?

We can't stand back alone
together we must stand up
for those so young need us
to rescue from their bitter cup

Our tears fill our hearts
to think of the damage
that's done to those so young
should fill us with rage

It could have been one of us
whose life suffered such abuse
think upon that for a while
please set the innocents loose


(This is written to highlight the plight of human traffiking, the human attrocity of our age)
