That Forceful Slap - Poem by Amit Parihar

Unaware I was when at school
What is caste? ? ? ?
Teacher asked, I was bewildered and
Gaze other faces uttering - Rajuput, Manhas,
Caste and so on,

I didn't know, teacher slapped on my face! ! ! !
I lost my conscious with unbearable slap
Being a kid, how could I be able to bear that?
Finally I know what is caste?

I was not born with a caste but finally framed
And taught first at school.
Still I cry! And want to fly
When reminiscences that forceful slap! ! !

Topic(s) of this poem: sadness

    How could a little boy suffer from such a 'slap'? The 'slap was wicked violence. Shout out your pains.
    Sometimes pains make people stronger. Fly in your poems.Fly in your sky. You will be very fine.
