Dagger - Poem by Daisy Pereira

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
