    Excellent. Thanks for sharing this topic in a magnificient way. I also wrote about child labour once and we all know how miserable is it for young minds and your acrostic seem to give a meaning to every letter of the topic. I hope people read this and get moved!

    I know this is a subject you care greatly about and you have done it justice with these words. As I said in the discussion, my prayers will include these children. Well done.

    This is an amazing poem! A child is the hope for future. If we neglect them, there is no bright future to see. 5/5!!

    How well penned dear meena.
    I feel beyond the pride when I think of that Afghanistan girl who stood up to the tyranny.
    she will always be my hero.

    I really enjoyed this poem, but I stuttered a bit in your second stanza lines 5,6 because it seemed to me as though the rhyming had been a little forced in. The message is great, it pracically shows the absent minded nature of mankind in a sense of that we dont pay attention to certain matters, or things going on around us. It may have just been the run on sentence, but I enjoyed this poem.

    No hero there to rescue them, you express the bitter reality of human trafficking and child slavery so poignantly. Excellent poem!!! Fills my mind with vivid scenes of bestial individuals lurking in dirty city streets, waiting in ambush for the vulnerable and defenseless. This poem,in my mind, is a call to action against this kind of evil. And I would personally like to see it widely posted on various sites and places to get peoples' attention, and move them out of their apathy.

    Meena, I don't know where to begin, such a sad sad thing, child slavery... this is a subject that doesn't seem to get much attention and yet there is so much of it in this world, I wish the governments would wake up and open their eyes and put a stop to this. Children are supposed to be happy and carefree, not used and abused. Your words are very heartfelt and I thank you for sharing this piece with us. (4)
