Treasure Island

Aparna Chatterjee


As Long As...


As long as
Men are there,
Women will be
Abused

And as long as
Women are there
They'll be abused


(This grim reality hasn't changed over the past many centuries and I doubt if it would change in the coming centuries)

    A Thoughtful poem Aparna. Very true said in few lines....As long as men are there women will be abused. Nothing has changed nor anything is going to change in future.
    We are moving from worst into worst. Today, woman of any age has to be cautious in all walks of life. Even children are not spared. What can be more worst than this?
