Resurgence At Kanyakumari - Poem by sreelekha premjit

It is appropriate thought she
sobbing, stiffling her groans of pain
trying to be herself

It is appropriate
that she lost her virginity
on the virgin shores of this land
a virgin goddess is here worshipped

It is appropriate
that life turned a violent leaf
crushing her innocence
strangling her pride in self

It is appropriate
that her freedom of a brave journo
has thus been trampled upon
her psyche has been scarred

It is appropriate
that this should happen
here in a land of blind believers
of frenzied religions

It is most appropriate
that the cruel waves
a mute witness- now rush to wash her
cleanse her innards(of
accumulated dirt of aeons)

It is but appropriate
that she gathers her remnant sprightliness
uncrease her soiled dress
pull up her broken resolve

dust off the dirt
straighten her shoulders and walk on..
the vast endless seas bid good bye
kissing her feet in penance

she walks off..
