Farewell - Poem by Stanley Bronny

In the era our needs arose
You decided to leave us in great pain
Forgetting I hadn't grown in brain
How will I keep
The family at ease?
If at least
We should be at ease
I would say your struggle
Was not in vain
If only you can
Return by train
I shall beg
For fund to raise

Speechless, you took a french leave
In the bright darkness
You left the shore
Swiftly your soul faded away
Helpless, I witnessed
Your siblings demolished your sweat
Took advantage
And broke your home
I stood on my feeble feet
And I watched the custom
Whipped mother
With the widowhood rites
How I wish this custom is bygone

Day by night
I pray you witness
The love of custom
As I look to you.
