They treated her like garbage

Scratched her and threw her on street.

They touched every part of her ,

every part so violently that

It pains when she breathes.


But still her virginity is questioned

while she is struggling to survive

Her character and curves are doubted

When they made her more dead than alive.


“It hurts,” she said

With sinister pain and cries

And all she wants is

Justice before her eyes


They say its because of mini-skirt

That exposed her thighs

Then why does it happen

With a 5 year old child ?


Real men don’t rape

That’s what the society says

But where were those million voices

When that rapist escaped?


Just try to listen to her silence ,

she is screaming inside.

Don’t let the law become lawless

Don’t let justice be left behind!
