Damini-'a Soul'

Was that my fault?
That I was a girl,
Or this,
That I was a working one,

Was this my fault?
That my dears trusted me thought,
Or this was my fault,
That I was breathing in my cloud….

Was this my fault?
That I tried to shoulder the world out,
Or this,
That I cried for justification…

Was this my fault,
That I was a girl,
If not,
Then why it happened?
Why 1000s of people openly….

Why humanity suicide for me,
Why they 6 hustled a life, a believe,
Why a girl, a respect was freeze,
I was not for enjoyment or craze…
A girl is one who bridged you,
And in return you crushed me through and through…

I was also an owner of dream,
A soul of smile,
A passion of talent,
And a responsibility of you.,,

Today I was nothing,
But a lesion for all,
A tear for smile,
A fear of life…

But still,
I wanted to breathe a bit more,
I still wanted to dream high,
I still wished to fly...

But no…
Today I am dead,
But still alive,
In pain of every heart,
In tears of every eye,
In every pain…..every try…

Today I am out of this buddy world,
Hope you will fight for me,
Will set me free,

I don't want you,
To cry for me,
But want you all to plant a tree,
On every road, every street,
That no more daminis will be compromised………..

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
