#Poetry4Freedom Poetry4Freedom is a startup project I began to support the work of (CAS) CaliforniaAgainstSlavery.org
The Goal of Poetry4Freedom is to collect a minimum of 50 poems re; any form of human trafficking.
Poetry4Freedom is poetry that raises awareness about human trafficking. Poetry goes beyond a story. Poetry is the language of the soul. Through poetry we can understand, feel and see what others feel.
The Vision of Poetry4Freedom is to raise awareness against human trafficking. Tell your story. Her story. His story. Their story. Be their voice.

The following ChildTrafficking poem was donated by writer Evangelina Guerrero for GFC & Poetry4Freedom
Lost child where do you belong?
With painted eyes and ruby lips.
Do your parents know you are gone,
scratches and bruises hidden under your slip.
By day locked away behind a door,
in silent tears you cry your pain,
how long will you stay? No one is sure.
Sweet innocence is lost, never to be regained.
Silent tears cry what is often read
a missing child, perhaps a run away.
Parents accepting their child is dead.
Not knowing they behind locked doors remain.
Paint a smile upon your face,
nowhere to run, nowhere to hide.
This room is now your only place,
where others like you sit side by side.
Over a million have gone away,
so many young lives hidden in locked rooms.
Silent tears they cry each day
while growing up too soon.
Behind locked doors the tears do flow,
to be handled like cheap merchandise,
to those who know, just where to go
in search of what delights their eyes.
Save the children from this plight
teach them the truth about human trade
that it exist in our everyday life
a hidden world has been made.
A million plus cry silent tears
shedded behind locked doors all over the land
a true existance that brings fear,
lets fight against it hand in hand.
Too many lifes lost to those who prey
upon our young and weak.
It happens all around every day
silent tears that cannot speak.
