On studying Psalm 94:3 I wrote this poem.
How long, Lord?
The plea of those without hope
I am sure they are crying out to You, Lord
I can hear their cries of anguish
Rescue them, Lord
Keep the police informed
Help the officials and those working to stop trafficking and slavery
Find and charge the perpetrators
Change the hearts of those who do this evil
Just like Paul was blinded by the light of Jesus.
Do the same to these men, women, whoever
Blind them and make them see the Light
Make them hear Your Words
Make them STOP
Open all eyes to know when something is not right
Help us to help stop this
Open hearts to give, every little bit helps
Open hearts to join all groups that work
To bring justice to the downtrodden
Free the captives
Open doors to new lives of freedom
Help restore lives
My anguish is real
My heart is sore
My head hurts
Why oh Lord?
How long must this go on?
Why do people hurt others?
Why must they have this power?
Help the officials find them
Help them rescue the abused
Use your Power oh Lord
Burst their balloons!
Make them deflate

Join me in fighting against human trafficking.
I am wearing a dress and a button every day in December to talk to people and raise funds for advocacy about human trafficking.
Here are a few pictures of my first few days.
I know – nothing matches.
But it sure causes conversation and that’s what I am trying to do. And it’s cool here.
