I am terribly shocked and remorseful
My sister, can’t help than weeping at your ill-fate
Transcending self to a passive onlooker
Or to the role of an unmindful passenger
With torn heart, tied hands, and bleeding eyes
All finding acutely difficult to convince!
Pardon me for this unpardonable silence
If you take it as my deliberate pretence;
Not knowing the penetrating penance
That I am undergoing at others’ expense!
-The most inflicting psycho-menace!!
Law prospered, promulgated and prompted
More in the letters than it matters!
Verdict, often, concocted and contradicted
Abetting the crime and aiding the accused
Under the pretext of allowance of doubt
Or for the lack of evidence, sought in court!
All appear broad open – crystal clear as daylight,
Still then, nothing substantiates the victim’s stand
Except rolling tears, burning wounds and shedding blood.
Judiciary – for reasons and revelations, at Law in force;
No passion, compassion or concession at logic-base!
Know that, you are broken, tortured and tormented;
Molested, wrecked and deserted, yet brave-heart!
Law — Forbidden fruit, for the poor and pro-literate;
Law — Blessing in disguise, for the rich and privileged!
I dare open my mouth, and face the consequence;
May even die a prestigious death, for the credence
But can’t !– tongue tight-tied and words imprisoned
Letting justice to lament, at someone’s behest!
My sister, can’t help than weeping at your pathetic plight
Pardon me for this unsavory act, if felt willful deceit!
This evening too fades away with reprimand and grief
Beneath the starry coverlet of the night, for some relief!
Let’s hope a new dawn will break with splendor and Just
May it bring you double the glory and pride you lost!!
