WHAT AM I?: Nephilim WHAT AM I?: Nephilim
A teen boy gets killed, but trades his soul for another chance. He changes. A girl notices the new boy with silver eyes.
Tears of A Dove

Tears of A Dove

A Poem by ManasaC


A pride of his

And a bliss to her soul

Yet she is crestfallen

For a girl’s honor couldn’t be saved.

Raped, tortured and maimed

Is this the legacy we leave behind?

Love and respect is all she needs

But those eyes see her as a commodity

To be used and thrown.

She is a girl

Clad with an armor of hope,

Yet her modesty is ripped

How can a society survive,

When the beast can’t be pacified?

 She is not the body she has

She is a power,

A part of the almighty himself

She is wisdom personified

She is the creator of life itself

Yet her life is a battleground of pain and death

What will come of a world as this?

Oh Mortals! Open those blinded eyes

Look around,

Apocalypse is the nature’s fight,

A fight to protect her daughters

 

Stand together

Light the fire of respect

Not the pyre of death

Fight in Unison

To protect the future

Before it is too late……

I loved this one Manasa :-)
We have been fighting this war of gender equality and women empowerment for so long but I feel the real transformation of society will take many more decades... It really pains me to see the hypocrisy of society and state of women around.
Very strong and powerful message throughout. I love those ending lines too...keep it up :-)
