Why Rape?

Posted: March 28, 2019

While juggling multiple roles, don’t forget you are important too.  Make yourself a priority because no one else will with #KhayaalRakhna

In the darkness of thoughts

The inner battles that I fought

The world has emerged from incessant crisis

My deep thoughts are in a state of metamorphosis

I believe, I hope, I deeply desire

That mankind doesn’t objectify my body on fire

Why scan me? Torment me with your aggressive eyes

You succumb my dreams to a bucket of lies

Your negative flames are multiplying & spreading in every corner of this country

Burning my inner hopes and poisoning my soulful tree

I can still hear voices of the poor infant, Nirbhaya, the old woman, the poor woman and the less fortunate

All tied up with this universal thought of blaming fate

Why rape? Why rape? Why rape?

The world wasn’t that horrendous even with dinosaurs or apes

Why mankind has put itself to sheer shame

All the laws, policies and systems has turned deaf and lame
