A Silent Prayer for the Girl and Millions
by Sharbaaniranjan Kundu
Bookmark and Share
  Tears and a stifling feeling
just well up
the moment I recollect
that young girl of twenty-three
violated upon
and brutally wounded
by six animals,
one purportedly juvenile.

Pity, heartless city
and law-keepers could not provide
life-saving support
to a girl
who would have spread wings
in life,
fulfilling dreams
of a family,
who banked upon her.

She wanted to live,
but cruel fate
took her away.

Who do I blame?
The society
that nurtured the scoundrels?
The almighty,
who is responsible
for giving life
to an innocent
and did not or could not prevent
the snuffing out of the same
so cruelly,
or bringing to earth the scars of society?

I have no answer.
Not to my personal suffering
and grief, the girl brought to millions.

I just cry in silence
for this incident
and the hundreds I have no answer for.

For the sufferings of humans
millennia after millennia
let my silent prayer go for their souls.

I just want to say,
to all those who ever suffered,
I love you all.

Oh God,
please pardon me,
for I can never take any suffering
with equanimity.
