Open thy eyes

Open your eyes
See them, force your eyes
Until they can see it

The souls in despair
The living and the dead
Are you still hungry?

Are you still hungry?
For pleasure and blood?
Or for tonight's dinner?

Or for tonight's dinner
With your gut wrenching
For a girl who died

For a girl who died
Who lost her right
To smile, laugh and live

To smile, laugh and live
For no sin of hers
For only being born

For only being born
As a girl child
A god-gifted one!

The world is blind even with eyes open. Powerful cascade!!

Sun Bloom said...

Yes. Such eyes should be removed. Until the society doesn't respect women, it will rot piecemeal. What a shame!

Thank you. :-)
