Very bravely and courageously
The slender young woman stood
As they exiled her to a deadly land
Where wild animals roamed-
Preying on all who dared to cross their trail.
Rulers and reformers of others life
Cruelly and mercilessly pounced-
On one poor innocent prey, the hapless woman!
Tearing her into pieces with their harsh words,
They gloated on her misery and sufferings.
Her agonized screams died in their roaring,
Helplessly she pleaded for mercy.
That, she was innocent all knew
But had no guts to save her
Lest the wrath burst on them too!
Cowardly they stood witnessing unparalleled cruelty
While she bled and groaned out in pain.
Her two beautiful flowers she gathered in her arms,
Kissing and consoling, she blessed them.
Softly she whispered –
‘Be wary of such animals on the loose
With in-satiated thirst for blood!’
Scared and motionless-
They snuggled closer to her.
Their pathetically painful cries –
‘Please spare our Ma’
Brought tears to all eyes
But, no one dared to stretch a helping hand.
Maimed, they stood like statues!
With abhorrence her kids were snatched
And thrown away like lepers!
They wailed and cried bitterly
As by her hair they dragged and-
Dumped her in a pool of blood and-
Merciless ruthlessness to die!
