Born into brothels
Though precious indeed
Sadly they have great need
As their parents are entangled
Often in prostitution and drugs
Yet like all other tender children
They need love, affirmation, and hugs
Would someone show mercy and care?
Would someone look beyond and dare?
To provide a future and hope to these
Which circumstances have handled roughly
Terrorizing their hearts brutishly and endlessly
Orphans are many and most without a Daddy
As for Mommy she often is engaged elsewhere
Selling her body to men to earn wages and bus fare
Trapped young ladies oppressed by manipulative pimps
Controlling, diverting, disguising, and always domineering
Dashing any hopes of love, life, and peace without strife
The brothels are a place of ill repute and shamefully lewd
Adorable children scathed by circumstances that are rude
Have to hear foul language and see unimaginable acts crude
Is it any wonder they cannot concentrate in school and feud
To survive on the streets and struggle to protect themselves
At what they call home and in their hearts wish to far away roam
Born in brothels is a dreadful existence that makes every heart groan
Yet somehow these kids can find hope when a caring soul arises
Sees past he who despises and earnestly in expectation realizes
That they too can be loved, lifted, nourished, and skillfully educated
Taken beyond this gross society full of sin that has irreverently deviated
Believing in the wonders of God, dreaming beyond the wretched and jaded
Perhaps if just one meek soul could show love to a child feeling alienated
A wonderful rescue of a beautiful child could occur in a world inebriated
If just one person could fight for the innocent children and be infuriated
A mighty deliverance could occur for a child who has prayed and waited.
