Child Abuse


Must repent thee
careless gardeners,
who sowed their coward seed..

Blossomed from it,
an innocent flower
No arrogance, ignorance
was habit of thee..

Approaching spring
enlightened thy charm,
But,
Sheltering there was
no arm..

Lustful moths and eager bees
took for granted,
Sucked the nectar
of the old enchanting..

O Holy Lord!
I beg n pray!
Iron bars of moans and pains,
Must stick thine magnetic hearts..

Beast-like elders.
who feel not the purity of flowers,
Must be forbidden to see the spring! !

Poet's Notes about The Poem

It is a protest against child abuse from the heart of a girl living in such feelingless world.Specially, now a days abusers arise from the family and to hear such distressed incidents, it really hurts..I wish 'ALL' such 'CURSED BEINGS' must suffer much more than the abused innocent flowers.

    Religion is the strongest device of social control bust most of us are not sincere to their belief. We should be taught..... Adl-o-Insaf Qyamat hi pe mauqoof nahin.....Zindagi khud bhi gunahon ki saza deti hay. Its my personal experience that what ever I did, whether good or bad, was returned to me at a latter stage.
    Good feel, good poem. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
