Slavery - Poem by Colin Ian Jeffery

Taken in war or kidnapped
Shackled in irons and sold
They are humans in despair.

Sold as property to be servile
Classed sub-human
They live out a life of misery.

Treated as unruly dogs
Worked from dawn to dusk
Breeding more slaves.

In captivity they sing of freedom
Spirit never wavering
Knowing God will set them free.

    A beautiful poem elaborating on the cruelty of slavery yet on the other
    hand looking for a future to be free with God as the One who will loose
    the shackles. Very intense and powerful. Excellent. (Report) Reply
