POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM

She is in coma as doctors announce. This provokes thought and brings sadness. We can only pray and send best wishes. God grants healing. This is excellently penned emotional poem...10

A very powerful and eye opening write. A soul degraded by vicious acts of violence. Can one so fragile ever regain a sense of being? Sham and shame two degrading words. Very well put together Om.

I see you have the great compassion, but life is much more then this. Never stop searching for more.
