A Prayer Against Rape

A Prayer Against Rape short poem

A Prayer Against Rape short poemUploaded by Anand John


God, how long will you tolerate this world?
The man is turning out to be an Ape.
Falling prey to his lustful desires & utter selfishness,
Everyday some girl is becoming victim of rape.

How a man can go to such an extent,
Committing sin against humanity.
Not knowing, it won’t just hurt her body,
But will also bring her soul into calamity.

I see them crying,
They have nothing left to claim.
Trying to hide from everybody,
Where can they carry their shame?

Her mother cannot comfort her,
Father has joined her mourn.
Thinking of lifelong regret she says,
God, why in the world, was I born.

Though their suffering knows no bounds,
And the dear ones have misunderstood.
Only you God, can comfort them in a way,
Like no one ever could.

Law & order doesn’t seem to help them,
Everyone is busy in carrying their own grudge.
God we look to you we trust you,
Fornicators & adulterous you will judge.

Against Deportation

Against Deportation short poem

Ahead of pain, we did not cry; intimating of dreams, crowded; stranded on issues, reaching nowhere. Black, a weird hairdo, unfurls a moon in half-sleep. You can open the door without sound. The snake writhes under your feet. A traveler

Often have I swept the floor, the veranda, the yard and all the passages of the house. I do not know whether as dedication or devotion the rough hand of the housewife has, by my daily use, swept our household
