I AM AFRAID TO LIVE IN THIS WORLD


I'm afraid to live in this world
the world has become a place
which is not safe for women

we should even fear our own shadows
we couldn't predict when those
hands of the evil
will grab us
and teare us into pieces

we have hearts!
we have souls!
we are human beings like you all.

when i remember that day.
The day when the dreams of a girl
where destroyed by those
cold blooded ones
A day in Delhi
that none of us forgets.

Death!
The reward that they got
but is it enough for what they have done?

this is the cry of every girl,
not just me
who is not safe
even in her mothers' womb.

A girl of two or a lady in her seventies
should fear the world
should fear the ones
who hides in the darkness to grab her,
to grab her into its darkness.
for her,
death hides in the streets
in its corners,
around her,
it hides in the air she breathes.


This damn world!
this bloody damn world is not safe for me,
not safe for you,
not safe for any one!

    A very apt and elaboration of the women's concern all over the globe as on date. If it is not stopped immediate the existence of human race itself will be in a question.
    But not all are these demons who do not know what is a woman, there are many people who stand by your side.

    This is a powerful and passionate poem, and you raise your voice to support those who are victims of violence. You make it very, painfully clear that you or someone close could be a victim too. My heart goes out to you because you have to live in a climate of fear. It's hard enough doing what you should be doing: going to school, being a good daughter, a good friend, planning for a productive, generous life - accomplishing those goals is a full life! But dealing with unprovoked violence is a shame. You can't stop the violence alone or dispel the fear by yourself, but the poem you wrote and gave to the world is an eloquent statement of defiance against those who do evil to others. Don't back down! Thousands and thousands of us are your silent supporters. (Report) Reply

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
