NIRBHAYA- the fearless one




You flow from our eyes as tears-tragic
Innocent spirit of your spunky youth,
You are a martyr, brave one- without fear;
Lifting the evil veils to embrace truth.

You flow from our hearts as humanity bleeds
Girl, We salute your warrior's courage
Brave one- without fear, you are a martyr,
Your ethereal soul, we pay homage!

You flow through veins as bubbling vengeance,
For every girl's horrendous suffering
you are a martyr. Brave one - without fear
Uniting us in death, is your life an offering?

You flow through our streets as strong protests
Towards each savage and grotesque act,
Brave one- without fear, you are a martyr
Igniting reforms to forge formidable laws and pact.

You flow through our minds as lurking shame,
We failed to shield you from the terrifying pain
You are a martyr, brave one- without fear,
Solemn promise, your sacrifice shall not be vain!




*dedicated to the Delhi brave heart who so wished to live despite the indescribable agony she suffered

    An ode to her soul it is. Have written on the subject myself, the least we can do to accompany her soul to heaven. Beautiful writing, a hymn to expression! Thank you.

    A wondrous tribute write almost a Villanella..it might be even more powerful put into that form. All woman around the world cry with you. TOO many men, too many without the calming affect of love and a wife, an excess of men breeds an excess of violence. Light & Love Always

    wow, what an incredible way to approach the zanila contest. By creating a poem on this very necessary action of making laws to stop the brutality. please keep me informed of what happens in your country as a result of the mass protests. let's hope this makes some changes in the world. I know we know more changes in our laws too! Glad you enjoy Winnie the pooh with your kids. I love the new avatar.
