The Cry Of Pain
Once upon a time
A woman stood still
In a long corridor in a hostel
Seemed very distraught
Thinking about her offspring;
She was weeping all the time
Not knowing what to do
Kept asking herself
Who can save my daughter‘s life!
The only one she has got in her life;
Seemingly; she shouted out of blue
Asking people; who were watching;
What to do!
Nobody gave a monkey’s to her appeal;
Once no one cared about her;
She just began praying to God
To bless her daughter’s soul
To forgive her daughter’s sins;
Alas! That mother in the long corridor
Whose tears have become as a river
That kept flowing
From an unknown source;
