    things like these get my heart gaping wide for those poor little souls lost in their own little worlds, for those souls who don't know right from wrong, the little kids whos ask themselves is this what fathers and brothers do? am i the reason my father left me and my mother all alone? it makes me furious to know that that's what's happening in the world, people in our neighborhood, people right next door. it's heartbreaking, they deserve a loving home, a real home not a house.. they need a place to rest their broken hearts and souls.. they need you, they need me, .. they need anyone with and open heart and mind.. great poem.. i was breathless, heartbroken.. ~Love Hazel G.E (Report) Reply

    We are slowly slipping into Satanic domain.........a much needed subject u have dealt with.....................keep taking up such things. A poet has social responsibility. When he flays social evils then only his fulfilment.......well done. (Report) Reply

    these are very difficult topics to discuss in open, but they are bitter realities of life.

    daring to bring out this
    in your monologue.

    courageous to deal with incest a subject both taboo and too often swept under the rug, in different societies there is too often a tolerance and blind eye,10 twice for two reasons both content and the sudden peripity from warm love to horrible exploitation, (Report) Reply

    lost childhood, house of horrors- i feel chilhood is no longer a care free time of life. children every where are suffering due to negligence or preoccupied parents. they suffer silently, in deep anguish or give in to aggression- hence the turmoil in society. a vey moving piece.

    What a very emotional piece. It brought tears in my eyes. This is a very powerful piece. Very emotional sad piece. (Report) Reply

    Dear Reshma, I am emotionally shattered. Make it a media report not a poem. I am so sad that ---. Devils are there always. They are not dad or brother.They do not what is a sacred and divine relationship. Edit it for further improvement. You do not say everything.Let the readers feel it in their heart. (Report) Reply

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
