Female Soldier - Poem by RAVIKIRAN ARAKKAL

im her teens she joined
The military academy,
dreamig of defending
Her country all the while,
Passed out with ranks
And colors, bettering the males,
She served the army,
In full faith and dedication,
till the male superiors
Made advances for mating
Pleasures which she resisted
And was tried to be raped
for which she went
to the military courts,
and getting court marshalled
By the male chauvanists
Siding the superiors
Ending up without the job
Or jail due to the intervention
Of Supreme court of the country,
where did justice and faith
Disappear with her condition?
