poverty, youth and innocence
in this lawless world
eager to prey on weak, feeble.
evil claws ripped off them
dragged them to hell.
they escaped to light
that did not ended their fight.
they returned to a society
thronged with the same vultures.
And people who preferred
they hide their misfortune
and pretend it did not happened.
they showed their strength
braving the crushing waves
decided to save the lives
about to be devoured.
they stood up together
to blow the cover from evil faces
to expose evil to light
they decided to fight.
We talk about courage, recently I read about the courage of some small girls, all under eighteen, girls of poor villages trafficked and rescued.
In India when things like this happen society thinks the girl is a pariah and treat her like that mostly. These girls knowing that dedicated their lives to save other girls.
Whenever they came to know about these pimps roaming in their area, or in some home they went to that family and warned them about their intentions.
In my eyes this means lot of courage- quite a lot of it.
