Motherland Bleeds...

Motherland Bleeds...

Menacing laughs echo in a perturbed night

No woman is safe even in the day from the sinister sights

Truth is incinerated by vicious lies

Seeing the cold ashes the motherland cries…


When screams of agony are buried by the silence

Pleas of justice are suppressed by violence

For her basic dignity and rights, the victim has to fight

Noticing her impotency the motherland falls quiet…


When a female takes her last breath

Candles are lit only after her death

Caste and creed becomes the reason for hate to spread

From visualizing dystopian future the motherland dreads…


Where taboo is talking about menstruation

Proscribed is the word ‘sex’; let alone education

And yet the word ‘rape’ is normalized

The celibacy of motherland seems compromised


When the victim is blamed for perpetrator’s crimes

Heinous offences are reduced to page three headlines

Where the gender itself becomes the cause of the abuse

The motherland seems beaten, battered and bruised


Where no daughter feels safe and secured

Inciting fear, only shame is assured  

After an outburst or two the nonchalant society proceeds

Watching the scared souls of its children the motherland bleeds…
