Dagger


Dagger sheaths an anger
suppressed in thousand hearts
curved laws and justifications
fewer commentators
blood washed with blood
proud yet fallen, killed yet not
trampled,
it is a shame in our souls
it is a dagger in our hearts
living eternally...
avenging a courageous girl
killed only to be triumphant
forever in our hearts..

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
