Irreversible Reaction

Women in Afghanistan Commit Suicide to Escape Domestic Violence

It is estimated that 2,300 Afghan women attempt suicide every year, reports National Geographic. Between March 2009 and March 2010 alone, an estimated 103 Afghan women set themselves on fire, reports the Ministry of Women's Affairs in Time Magazine. Most women are successful in their efforts. It is believed that more than 80% of women who attempt suicide by fire or self immolation die, reports Time Magazine. ( Women's Revolution, Sunday, January 16, 2011)

By the side of you, rest of your life
She vowed you to share grief and strife
To be together until depart by death
She was the one who kept on you  faith

Happy moments added to days and years
She brought up precious sons and daughters
To ease your life with every gladness
She swallowed silently any bitter soreness

She was to welcome weary you at the door
You were in torment, she made it pass slow
She assured  when you suppressed in fate
She was really your faithful soul mate

Beach parties at every Saturday night
Camping, surfing and adventurous flight
For your own pleasure along aims of life
Had you ever been nonchalant on your wife?

For a slight mishap, you abused her a peak
Ending arguments with lavish slaps on cheek
Hiding your blunders raised arrogant voice
Had you ever been egoistic on  her face?

Deprived love in her own grand  kingdom
Tortured her mind at each and every blink
Agony buried in her heavy heart fathom
It might compel her to make own life sink

Could you bloom a lovely fresh  blossom
From its cleaved petals  gone  withered?
She was merely a fragrant satin blossom
Why did you let her life untimely fade?
