Roll of dice
A spin of the big wheel
Run of a stop sign

Significant downward spiral
Until a choice between comfort or fear
Tempts a vulnerable one
Who in search of self-worth
Forsakes the past
Builds a new life of servitude
Torn between gratitude and fear
Addicted, beaten, and abused

Justice eludes those victims who
Undeniably deserve better than
Waiting lists
Hasty, uninformed decisions

Youth flits precariously
Innocence disappears
