Let's Act Rebel - Poem by Kishor Pathak

I'm not writing this cos I'm a dreamer
It's for a cause to throw some beamer
If you read this do think once, may be twice
If you want peace, we need to organize

When I look at the globe it sounds boom
But people are hungry, running for zoom
They do everything be it good or bad?
World is getting dirty we all are trapped

Life has taught us lot many acts
Good things exist to keep us on track
But we all are thirsty for sex and blood
Innocents are dead they can't even shrug

We all have onus in our name
Let's act rebel, forget about fame
The gal is gone but time has not
Bullies should be hanged tight with knot

She must have screamed crying in pain
Begged predators, while she was drained
Her agony didn't shake their monstrous soul
They slashed her organs, to attain final goal

She must have felt so cheated and so alone
She must have thought about her lost crown
She couldn't talk to anyone anymore on this
Even beloved be ashamed and won't love this

She is a statistic for a heinous crime
She is everywhere from roads to shrine
Some might say this kind of rape isn't as bad
Her rapist are free instead being dragged

No one wants to discuss this rape.
No one wants to put it for talk.
No one wants to admit the blame
All are busy playing wicked game

We gather in protest for day or two
Then let go anger which makes pimp true
Globe is getting brutal in from of our eyes
We need to demolish this with all our voice

Dictators are king, we are scums
This is all because we keep mum
We need to rise up, put some light
Take the vengeance, prove our might

Media-educated drones are active for TRPs
Cannibals are treated more like artist
We all are puppets that's the only reason
Slaughterers are on streets not in prison

Political parties are dumb, deaf and so fake
Promises are fictitious and only for namesake
We need to gather and pose true threat
Hooligans wouldn't be dead if we act straight

Dark eyes on us are trailing from behind
We never see them as they speak divine
By raising a voice we can just yelp
Swords will do things and bring us help

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Being treated bad is not our fault but not doing anything about it makes us culpable. It's very easy to look back and think of possibilities for when we could have broken the silence and rise up. When it comes to being outrageous, we doing nothing, but gives a dumb thought about the future consequences. We just see a gloomy future and take a stop. We get threatened by the fact of being called liars, loss of self-esteem, social status and fake crown. Abusers openly threaten us in the name of our beloved and bring us down. Keeping a mum is not gonna help. If we really care to protect others we need to rebel. In the cause, innocents might get hurt and we may feel complicit in the abuse. It's understandable, and there are practical barriers to the action, like not knowing how to bring it up in conversation and how to get it through. We struggle to talk about sex, especially when abusive in nature; we never find ways to describe it. Even if we do, speak out, get the culprits behind bars, lawmakers get bribed and let go the predators. These lawmakers are none but one amongst us. They entangle us in proceedings, buy time for themselves and triumph in the end. But, who cares what's happening to others. We are busy sitting at home, enjoy the 'rewards' and laugh over misery of abused and this where we are the culprits. One thing we got to understand, today someone else is trapped, and in future it could be us. We become responsible for the abuse if we don't react. We need to come out of our comfort zones and do something so that the world remains a safe place to live.

    Its a good thought with content but you could have done this better....
    This poem has gone literal...
    It could have been more abstract...
    Sorry if I overstepped my limits....
