Breaks Me… - Poem by Khyati Mehra

Today..
As I hear ppl arnd me say…
Tht wat happened on tht fateful day..
Is bad no doubt… but dats just destiny’s way, ..
Of taking all the ppl it has to… away…
Something inside me breaks… my heart… my soul…
I cannot with surety say…
Im filled wid a huge dismay…

I cannot work…
This thing keeps haunting…
As if something inside me is wanting…
To be set free.. to shout…
To tell every1 arnd me… to scream aloud..
That this was not wat destiny wanted…

But this is what we have turned the world into…
We give the kids a childhood of damnation…
Of shouts.. of humiliation…
Their li’l minds cannot fully comprehend…
Wats goin on they jst cannot understand..
And as the time passes…
As their li’l minds start growing..
All they want is revenge…
But how? ? not really knowing….
They just want an answer…
they want to know why…
Why were they abused? ?
Why cudnt anyone hear them cry? ?

They were small an’ innocent…
Did not realize…
That all that they went thru…
Was not destiny in disguise, , ,
It was the ppl…
Ppl who they trusted…
Ppl… who had their faith busted…

So now they feel..
The time has come… and their wounds will heal…
There was a time when they were the innocent…
And ppl stained their souls…


Now they have the power…
The time has come…
When the innocent will die…
when they will be squashed like a rotten plum..
their hatred… the frustration..
turns into a nitemare…

when once more…
the innocent.. r the ones bearing the wrath… the roar..

who is to blame? ?
The one who killed?
Or the ones who died? ?

Its you…
you who gave the psycho the childhood in w/c he grew..

I wish every1 in this world cud understand..
Its we.. its in our hands..
To shape the future..
To build a beautiful mind…
Grow gems in ure family…
Let their souls be kind..

Don’t give them a childhood of abuse…
It’ll come back to you one day…
and u’ll repent..
u’ll resent..
and u’ll wish u cud make an amend…

u’ll never b able 2 4give urself…
for killing the innocent..
the ones u killed now..
and also the one…
whose soul you wounded back then…
