Dagger


Dagger sheaths an anger
suppressed in thousand hearts
curved laws and justifications
fewer commentators
blood washed with blood
proud yet fallen, killed yet not
trampled,
your death,
it is a shame in our souls

it is a dagger thrusted deep in our hearts
living eternally...
avenging a courageous girl
you are a pause between
two points of time,

killed only to be triumphant
forever in our hearts..

    A poem about huge injustice that I agree with. Hopefully those who were in the wrong will be rightfully punished, even though she can't be brought back. Nicely done (Report) Reply
