Alone

August 12, 2008
By stefani ferry, Hobart, WA

Suffering through the screams at night,
Holding on to their pillows tight.
crude owners and tortured slaves feud,
Most women being punished and stripped nude.
Hoping that one day they will be free,
Waking up and being able to flee.
Trapped until that time arrives,
Having desire to keep their lives.
Being whipped and beaten they carry on,
Until they can not feel,
the pain has gone.
They stand strong in hope for their lives to be their own,
To live as civilized families and not just alone.
