SHE..

She lies in the dark corner of the room

Her body still stinking of male obtrusion

Her penetrated soul bearing wounds of shame

Lamenting her birth and existence

 

She shuts her eyes, the darkness is the same

Her eyes have dried, but her heart’s still crying

The why’s, how’s, what if’s, If only’s haunting her

Killing her softly moment by moment

 

She once had dreamed of standing tall

Now she’s in a pit of unfathomable depths

She once was a pillar of love and strength

Now she’s torn apart on the streets of disgrace

 

She once had dreamed of making her nation proud

Now she lies under the dirty smelly feet of her own brethren

She once was the lace tying all the beads

Now she’s broken bit by bit, piece by piece

 

Someone please tell her that there is hope

For she might soon lose the dwindling faith

Someone please bring her on her feet

For she might soon lose the strength to stand up

 

Someone please hold her hand with reassurance

For she might soon forget what a caring touch felt like

Someone please wipe that drop off her eyes

For she is tired of swallowing every tear she cries

 

She is that little unaware  girl

Whose innocence was exploited by her own kin

She is that college going daughter

Who fell prey to the lust of salivating excuses for humans

 

She is that mother of five daughters

Who got killed by someone unable to knock up a Y chromosome

She is that every woman of India

Who trembles when walking alone late on the streets

 

She stood by us all the time

If only all of us could stand up for her

She was given the holy gift of creating life

If only she could get her rightful place under the sun..
