Ripped from his home,

Driven far away,

Missing his father and mother

And all the games they used to play,

Shoved in a diseased hull of a ship

While bodies died from hunger and starvation on their voyage trip,

Taken to places far and wide

With each place awaited a surprise

One by one they were left in a country

Unknown to them and nothing they could see,

This was an instant trade of slavery

Other human used...people… you and me?

Author's Notes:

Okay to be honest this was just a quick write.
