A Poem by Aswin R Prasad

"

Hang the rapists!

"

She was born into her daddy’s arm,
Giving birth to her, died her mom!
He looked at her,
He never wanted her harmed..
The first time she called him “daddy”,
Her eyes sparkled.
He swore to protect her.
She grew up faster than he thought..
It got him startled,
He was not prepared.
She started going out.
Those times he fought
With himself,to prove him wrong.
He wanted her to be safe,
Safe from human race,
As he knew there were people,
People whose minds which were so feeble.

One day she came back home,
All broken,all torn..
He was proved right,
She was raped that night.
He swore to protect her with his life,
Still he couldn’t,She was so fragile!
His little girl,Daddy’s only pearl,
Pale as she could be.
He couldn’t bear the sight,
He hugged her so tight.
Would the society accept her?
Would her own family accept her?
His mind were filled with thoughts.
But all he knew was that,
This girl,Was his baby,He was her daddy,
She was his pearl,
Valuable,as she was his daughter,
Vulnerable, as she was born a ‘girl’!
