End of Existence


A breathing bud of life
Lived inside her womb,
Waiting to take a plunge
Into the beautiful crooked world,
In the broad shining daylight.
The closed eyes and the kicks
Made her turn crimson red,
As she blushed feeling shy,
Expressing her eternal glee,
With happy tears as she shed.
Time moved on
As the sharp social claws,
Pounced on the maiden,
And she screamed and cried,
To save the heartbeats inside
But all in vain!
The blood flowing on the floor
Announced the annihilation of existence,
As the budding seed and the lass
Were not there to smile anymore!

    Very unfortunate that such incidents happen so frequently in our country especially with female foetus. A brilliant portrayal of a mother's helplessness in the face of ' sharp social claws.' (Report) Reply

    Annihilation of existence is the theme and fact which is to be condemned by all. The law doesn't permit it. A beautiful poem and deep feeling it made. (Report) Reply
