Woman...... The Price you pay for!!!

The scream tore through the darkness,

Stopped me in my tracks,

I froze to the deafening silence.

Silhouettes of men against the foggy night

Scrambling for life,

They vanished out of sight

A frame slithered

My heart twitched

Amidst bitter sobbing

Someone shrieked,
“Help me..”

I slashed through the thick bush

My mind totally numb

I felt the blood rush

I tried not to succumb

Shreds of clothes strewn around,

Wriggled on the ground

Was a woman – naked.....

Wrapped in muck and blood,

Her hands bound with cord..

Her eyes devoid of expression

Her face starved of emotions

Her body writhed in pain,

She was floating in unknown terrain..

She was preyed upon

By ruthless scavengers called men,

Every inch of her body, clawed at

By those hungry vultures

She must have tried hard,

To stave off those beasts

As they raped her again and again..

Every breath of hers

Must have pleaded mercy

But she was ripped apart

With that male thrust..

A scar on her womanhood,

Soul devastated beyond repair

Dreams shattered,

Dignity snatched

She is reduced to nothing,

But a log of wood..
