Tear Tells A Tale - Poem by Bharati Nayak

Tear from the land of Nigeria
Tells a story of pain
A story of being chained
Chained in her body and soul
Soul of a beautiful girl
Girl of such tender age
Being separated
From her loving family
And kept away in some dungeon


Tear tells a story
How she wishes to be freed
And get back to the warm hugs
Of her parents and siblings
Keeping the fire of hope kindling
Tear awaits some angels
Awaits for the day
When they will be coming
Keeping the fire of hope kindling
She wishes the story
To have a happy ending.

    We wish too the story should have a happy ending. It hurts when small girls are tortured and kept in inhuman condition and exploited. An eye opener. Thanks. (Report) Reply

    Thank you all dear poets for your touching comments.The story may be true.It may not be life story of the one who penned it.But it is true story of thousands or lakhs of such poor girls who get lost..They lose their parents, home, siblings and all address for contact.Their story never come out All their identity is lost in some darkness.The day I read a poem by one unknown poet I felt like crying.This poem I wrote on the verge of moment.

    Every teardrop that is shed and the ones that remain buried inside has a story to tell... You captured the tragedy of a little girl trapped in a dungeon very aptly without taking a melodramatic vein or going preachy either... I respect this poem Bharti.. This is one of the best poems of yours that I have read... Wonderful work.. Thank you for sharing.. (Report) Reply
