Face Of Shame - Poem by Kavya ...

What a shame on our Nation
Who can't even respect woman
Gender male is getting uglier
And this applies for all as there is no waiver

Its become hard to discriminate
Who is good or bad
Nowadays nobody can be trusted
Not even your own blood!

Every day there is news on murder, kidnap and rape
The country is today in a real bad shape
Every incident that happens is short lived
As a new incident takes over and leads

The mass public express wrath, organises protest march
But to what extent is this useful
Unless the punishment meted out to culprits
Is really harsh!

We welcome every new year with great aspiration
Of making more developments n become a tech savvy nation
But with passing years are we really developing
As the mindsets of people are even more shrinking!

How can this menace be actually curbed
As everyday one or other woman gets snubbed
Its high time the culprits, the hooligans are severely punished
And from the country they are totally banished

Mother India our country is fondly known
Is crying in shame since the uglier side it has shown
As the calls n cries will never reach to whom they should reach
Unless the language is one in which we all preach!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

on the recent incident of Delhi gang rape that has created a spark in the nation.
Human rights should not be available to grievous offenders; laws have to be stringent and they have to be imposed without remorse.
We are proud to be Indians as still there are so many good people striving for the betterment of our Motherland..

    A lovely clarion call for Universal Brotherhood of man, well articulated and nicely penned. The ills of a society well depicted to capture the essence of the poem and the poet's convictions. A nice piece indeed. Thanks for sharing and do keep it up. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
