Shattered Dreams...

A beautiful blossom, she was meant to be,
Her eyes, so innocent, her mind so free,
Her laughter, like the tinkling of a little bell,
A beauty made in heaven, yet sent to hell.

Her voice, so mellow, could touch your heart,
Yet in a moment, her perfect world, was torn apart,
A glance so evil, a stare full of lust,
Her vivid little dreams, he did turn into dust.

Her voice full of pain, she did indeed shout,
But not a soul came along, to help her out,
He wounded not her body, he wounded her mind,
Only her shattered life, did he leave behind.

In only a moment, her smile did disappear,
Her life once full of hope, was now always in fear,
A chained life, she now leads, it was once so free,
Her laughter is now gone; now there is only misery.

Memories she cherished, she did lose that day,
No God she believed in, did hear her heartfelt pray,
He still continues, to stalk other angels like her,
Time never healed her sorrow, it only saw her suffer.

My friends, is it not time we unite?
Against devils like him, shall we now fight?
Let us stop them now, before it is too late,
Let us save a child, from such a cruel fate.

The smiles they lost, let us bring them back,
Give them the support, which they feel they lack,
Help them realize, the dreams they once did see,
A little memory for them, to treasure forever happily.

For one smile alone, makes a thousand others.

The picture below, is a prayer. For every little heart which has suffered. May not another heart be wounded like that ever again. Amen.

For a child, for their dream...Let them never be shattered.

  4. @Leo: i am speechless..beautiful is too small a word for it Vinay...

  5. Of all the crimes in the world, one that ruins innocence is the worst. Belief and hope in those eyes is what keeps the world going on. Inhuman is not the word for it!
