Rape in the city, lifestyle was blamed
Rape of a teenager, clothing was blamed.
And now?

8 year old, simply dressed,
Living in village
No modern lifestyle
Innocent and unaware of all this.

Childishly innocent she probably didn't know what was happening
Only knew that her pain was accuring

Terrified and frightened she begged for mercy,
But the wasps remained bloodthirsty.

They murdered her innocence every day,
And then finally they took her painful breaths away.

Her name means "pure" and such was her soul,
Yet to their foul eyes,
Her body was only of the lust to behold.

Such was their monstrosity they didn't let her dead, broken and Battered body to be buried,

In the name of religion, they were blinded.
They took her death to religion's fair,
But let me tell you this: the day their daughter died, both "The Bhagavan" and "The Allah" cried.

The temple which once echoed of ringing bells
now echoes of the screams for justice of that 8-year-old.

This is beyond sad. No human should have to endure such horror, certainly not an innocent child. Verse six second line small typo, I think you meant eyes instead of yes.

Aayushi I can barely grasp the terror of this piece. The horrid story you have shared. I could only pray this is not real, but know it very possibly is. Your words have touched my heart Aayushi. Welcome to Poetry Soup my friend :)
