The Girl In The Window

The following poem was written in response to #FFFC#57.

FFFC#57

Looking out into the dark night

Wanting to escape, knowing it was right

Longing to see her family

Perhaps she should cause a calamity

If she left she’d be tracked

If found she’d be attacked

Brought here many years ago

For reasons many didn’t want to know

The woman that brought her here

Knew not what she’d endear

Planning her great escape

Before she was again raped

  1. So very sad, so much evil is done in these cases. May hers have a better ending.

  3. Enslavement is real and can happen anywhere. I pray she gets away and finds a safe place.

  4. That’s heavy. And so true of many stories that have come to light over recent years
