Innocence Lost. - Poem by Deepti Agarwal

Innocent girl of seven
always looked at heaven,
hoping to get a glimpse
of her father long gone, since...

No where were colours
which made her pailer.
Living among a big family
found herself lonely.

was afraid of demons
did'nt knew will find one
at the place she called 'home'
could not escape
devil overpowerd her... taking away
her innocence,
making her life colourless.

Demon frightened her so much
she dare not open her mouth.
though her heart, and,
body wanted to shout.

Oh! what a fate she saw -
was forced to tie the sacred thread.
Her heart bled. She recoiled back
in her cocoon
no body saw
the tears,
the fears.

    oh devil schemes,
    to crush gurl's dream,
    Innocence forever lost
    At the great cost.
    Good work

    a bitter truth of mankind....few lines from my new poem on which i'm still working on, thanks

    my heart shed tears in pain
    why men has become so insane
    for few minutes of pleasure and desire
    it murders every second of humanity

    sexual assault on a seven year child? my God! the word 'sacred thread' is painfully indicative...
    deepti, your poem is nice... but my mood spoilt...

    Very beatiful description of an innocent girl.But how did her innocence get lost in this process, I could not understand.However it is a very pure poem full of innocence.Excellent work. (Report) Reply
