Justice for rape victims

By: Mousumi Biswas


We are in shock and gloom ,
They shriveled even before they bloomed .
To rest they have been laid
But let  their memories from our minds not fade .
Beaten  , tormented , burnt , scarred and hurt 
It was a bitter struggle for the victims to survive
They could not play or walk about  free 
As the monsters pounced  upon them with  glee 
They  cried , shouted and shrieked
But the tormenters already their dignity had ripped 
Rape isn't just about women
It's when men  turn barbarians
And are no longer humans
Justice late is justice denied
