The Lovable - Poem by ratnaprabha raykar

we know, we know
you are innocent
caught in the eye of the storm
lashed you, hounded you
for six long months

yet stoic and subdued
not a voice you raised
you endured!
you endured for him.

sons of politicians ring
death knell for fathers
a father for his daughter
unheard of until now!

we understand! we understand!
your love for him sealed your lips
submerged you under his favours

but you are a wife
also a mother
you owe them that much
your name to be cleared!

raise your voice
clear your name
you owe yourself that much
you will! you will!
we know
you will!
