Treasure Island

Bijay Kant Dubey


Honour Killing (Arabic & Conservative)


Just for her love and innocence
And the acceptance of it,
You are killing her,
Punishing her so hard,
Haven't you
That she is daughter,
For whom will you weep someday
When she will be no more here?

Kill not your daughter just for your madness,
Punish her not so hard,
Don't be so hard of heart
Though she is the lovely daughter of yours,
Why can you not pardon her,
Forgive her,
After all she is your daughter,
Can't you think in this way
Rather than brutal, bloody and bestial?

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
