A Scream


Last night it was a dream
Dipped in agony,
I heard a scream.

A petite form I could see
With tiny fingers,
trying to reach me.

And it tried hard
But it was me,
who failed to guard.

Last night it was a dream
Dipped in agony,
I heard a scream.

A cry it was
That questioned me
why I let the evils pass.

And I couldn't retort
In response,
I just cried my heart out.

Last night it was a dream
Dipped in agony,
I heard a scream.

She was my child
Before meeting me,
who had died.

The barbarity of the human race
Being a Girl,
She had to face.


Last night it was a dream
Dipped in agony,
I heard a scream.

The poem is just a tiny attempt at the issue, and I am for sure oblivious to the actual pain bore by the two. But few articles, poems and alike have certainly done a lot to put forward my stand. This I originally wrote for my college magazine, and as always felt like sharing.
