Unchained

(for the unknown children thrown into the world of human trafficking)



The street was dirt and the clothes were rags

Tossed to one side then the other

All the garments of life were torn

The heart was chained by the thoughts of others

Acted out on the street of dirt

Tossed to one side then the other

Jumped in puddles of childless innocence,

A smile for one, a moment in pain

For their heart was enchained by the thoughts of others

All the garments of life are torn.

Lesser man unable to bear

But lessor men inflicting the pain

Acted out on the street of dirt

For their heart was enchained by the thought of another

They will rise to wear the rags

They will rise to feel the pain

They will rise to bear the shame

They will rise on the street of dirt

For their heart was enchained by the thought of another

Scrape away the dirt

Change the clothes of rags

Heal the torn wounds

Release the shame

For their heart was enchained by the thoughts of others

Dance child

First to one side then the other

Jump in the pure puddles of innocence

Lessor men inflict no more

For your heart is unchained by the thought of One other
