Watch Them

Watch them Lord, please I pray.

Let my tears share with you what I can’t say.

Hold them fast tonight.

Hold them with all your might.

Too young they are indeed.

For someone to abuse them for their needs.

Watch them Lord I pray.

Because It can’t stay this way.

-R.D. Jess

Since 2010 January has been the national awareness month against human trafficking. This last Tuesday was the national day. I have come to learn this to late to make a post on that day, but it has been something heavy on my heart. In fact I wrote this after someone told me a story. My heart aches and I pray that this will come to an end. Please pray with me for the rest of the month. -God Bless

Hi, I am R.D. Jess. I am a christian writer and postpartum doula. My relationship with my God is not a religion but a state of who I am. I love being there for others and find that writing the hard truth is the best way to make people feel less alone.
