Poetry.

Looking around the Kairos website, I found some poetry. I was instantly touched by this poetry about life working on the streets, although it isn’t said who has written the poems, they are narrated through the eyes of a prostitute working in Coventry.

Stereotypes

I am afraid to have to admit that the public have the view us working girls in Hillfields do whatever we’re asked to do.
Police and press portray ‘our kind’ as druggies, half dead and diseased maybe just one or two are that but that’s all they’ll let you see.
An easy life we choose to live That is what they say. If that’s true then you should try, I bet you couldn’t hack one day.
Don’t pass judgement on the unknown; desperation drives us to what we do; we see no choice, no escape from this, it could so easily be you!
