She had so much to say
But there was no one to hear
And no one to answer
The reason for her tears…..
She was shouting aloud
Amidst a deaf and dumb crowd
So she turned to God and asked, “Why?”
But as expected, there was no reply….
Countless tears had been shed
Dripping on cheeks that once blushed red
But now, had scars engraved on them…
But no more tears , cause now
There were hardly any left….
Her mother’s words kept echoing
“Darling, not everyone is as good as he seems..”
And a lost toy didn’t matter to her anymore
Cause she had seen happiness and innocence run away through the door…
That now,she is compelled to see
A monster in everyone she meets….
And her fate saw – hope, love and trust
Become just words for her to say
Cause she knew, in this world
Her Cinderella will always stay in pain…..
People say,” Time can heal wounds as it flows.”
But it just can’t change the dark past
Through which one had to go…..
So breathing in reality
And discarding everything that seemed pretty
Once again,she tried walking on those streets
Feeling as safe as she used to feel…
Mocking her cruel destiny
And silently slapping the world’s integrity…..
Another girl began to fake smiles
And struggled to move on in her life….
But nothing can stop her or any other girl
From losing her smile..
No complaints and no revolts
But the change which has to start
Right here, in our souls……
