A Prostitute.... - Poem by kafil uddin raihan.

She is a mother,
She has loves,
She has dreams,
She is creative,
She is beautiful,
But above all to us,
She is a prostitute.

You hate her,
You scold her,
You leave her,
In the dark world,
You say her worse life,
To your all now,
She is a prostitute.

Can you answer me,
Why such identity of her?
Why she is so hated?
Who made her so?
The god or you?
Isn't it your nasty lust?
Isn't it your ugly greed?
Isn't it You man,
Who left her helpless?
Isn't it you man,
Who thrown her in darkness?
Isn't it you man,
Who pulled her to hell?
Isn't it you man,
For whom she is a prostitute?

Hey god, I confess,
On behalf of these cowards,
I confess my sin to make her so.
Judge yourself man,
Who suits in that burning hell?
Isn't that me, you, us, the lusty man?
Or that lady, who was born innocent?
But now to all of these society,
She is a prostitute.....

    A very touching poem and theme. You are opening males' eyes to face reality and admit their responsibility and their lust and greed in makiing her so. Good interest in the excavation of the human nature, the some purpose as mine. A good criticism too for the cruel and irrational societies of the whole world's view of the innocent that she is. (Report)Reply

    the ulgy truth of the matter is that the same people who look down on her the most are her biggest customers, it is an evil, corupt, and hypocritical world we live in.. This is an amazing poem with deep emotion (Report)Reply

    Your poem certainly touches on the deep dark truth of the life of a prostitute. (And I like the repetition, gives extra emphasis) (Report)Reply

    Repeat is good...remember a street walker a gift from our creator...she is a woman...who can give life...her life was turn away by some misfortune...
    Maybe that is a eye opener...not an eye sore...we who are more fortunate...must see the good in all that we meet...you have stated that..I hear you.

    Repetitive lines. Take care of them. I am coming across with the same theme now and again. We blame men for their lust. Poor circumstances of a family also drives a woman into prostitution. A woman too may have her lust. This also can drive her into prostitution. There are so many factors. It is only the reasons that we always point out and not the solution. This has practically no solution because many factors contirubte to prostituion. What we need is a moral code but nobody is really interested to follow it. We have our own doubts about Dharma and Adharma and wish to define it according to our likes and dislikes and not from the angle of values and virtues. We should have a prayful attitude towards those poor prostitutes. The entire society should have this prayer. That prayer will compel the individuals to look upon the women folk as their sisters and mothers. Our women folk too has a responsibility. Our mothers are to be careful about their daughters - they are to be aware of the seductive appearance arising out of the kind of dresses, make ups etc. What about the so called TV Reality Shows? Only the women folk can literally transform the mind of men by feeling them as their brothers and fathers. In the dictionary of our young girls and boys, there seems to be no other word than 'love'. Even friendship is not a substitute for a brotherly or a sisterly feeling. All of us have a role to play in this. (Report)Reply
