No one knows it, but we are like petals falling from a flower

There is a happy time, and then it ends

There is love, but for a short time and only in front of my face

Men boast we are pretty, but they are not honest with us

We boast we are pretty while we wear make up

No one knows it, but we are like petals falling from a flower

The only beauty we have is spiritual

Life is just life, it has no meaning

An English translation of a poem on a wall in a closed down brothel in SvayPak, Cambodia.  Agape International Ministries are transforming the brothel into a community centre in the heart of Svay Pak. Svay Pak is a small village located on the outskirts of Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia.  They say that Svay Pak is a world wide staging ground for the destruction of young girls’ lives. Where girls as young as three and four are sold for profit.
