Stop this plague called rape

I’m greatly distressed just as several other right thinking citizens across this country are, as I read & hear of the growing incidents of children being raped & sexually molested across India.

I hope & pray this deadly plague of rape which destroys millions of children around the world will come to an end.

I hope the people who indulge in this perversion understand how utterly wrong, debased & filthy it is. Raping children is nothing short of demonic and is a terrible abomination.

I hope these people understand  the implications of their barbaric acts on the innocents who are traumatized & scarred for life – physically, mentally & emotionally.

I hope & pray this plague will end. Soon.

Wrote the poem below after recently hearing about another innocent child who was raped & her happy life forever altered…

 For no fault of mine

Loved & happy
Free as a butterfly
That’s who I am.

*

I am a little girl
My family loves me
That’s my greatest strength.

*

I go to school to learn & play
It’s a new world out there
That’s what I love to do.

*

I made many friends
We laugh and we play
That’s how I grow.

*

The teacher uncle I trusted
Tells me he cares
He holds me & does things
That’s when I know its wrong.

*

He rapes me.
A word I didn’t even know
And my happy childhood he brings to an end.

*

A butterfly I was
That was then
Now I lie sad & wounded on the ground.
