I Prithee

I Prithee

A Poem by AK

To those tormented, God,
Pray,
Shackle their troubles.
Delusional souls- spare
May they see themselves for 
Who they really are.

Let not those frail figures shrivel
Food to those systems denied
Yet shows the mirror in the mind's eye
Fatness, ugliness--
Lies.

Prevent those slashes, mutilating
Thy perfect creation!
Why must red meet skin,
Glistening like the piercing pain within
Inerasable scars embossed in skin.
How dost thou lie peaceful, smiling?
These souls could fathom even not
What thou posseseth- peace?
The upward curve of a mouth?
But memories trodden over
By ruthless, looming figures.

Dissolve those miseries 'nto oblivion
May they perceive the world golden once more.
Aren't thou capable of that?
Or is thy puissance overrated?

To those tormented, God,
Pray,
Shackle their troubles.
Delusional souls- spare
May they see themselves for 
Who they really are.

When I found out that a good friend of mine at school was depressed, cutting and anorexic, this poem arose out of me. Any comments/ suggestions are welcome (:

This is very good poetry. I like the flow of thoughts and the questions brought to life by strong statements.

Poem with thoughts penned lucidly and artfully. I like it. I believe we cant question our creator. But we often do that out of frustration, misery, and when things go beyond our comprehension. You have described it all with beautiful phrasings.

This poem shows how much you care for that one friend of yours,like you can feel her pain and all you want is that it should be over. :)
