Are you brave enough? -Megha Sood

Come read my poem on Whisper and the Roar to see if you can handle the pain.

Whisper and the Roar

pierre-acobas-522215.jpg

If I drink up all your sorrow
will you be good as new
if I smoke all your worries
in a puff
will you stay alive
for a few hours more

if I scrape all your scars
and wash up all your pain
Will you believe
in what I have to stay
to you?

Scrubbed
Rubbed
Washed and
Cleaned
Glistening in the light
Will we be together again?
if I wash that blood of my sins
off my palms,
Will you give me company for life?

Whimp
Groan
whisper and
and a scream
if I let all my heart out
Will you hold my hands
till the end of time
tie that holy knot?

Promises
Promises
I have heard many
and faces and names
I have seen enough
You are as weak as they come
Strong enough
till you see my gaping wound
and shudder

Rising high on your ego

up and showed the world the real strength of a fighting soul.

” He has changed my face, not my heart. He has burned my face ,
not my dreams”
–Laxmi Agarwal, acid attack survivor

She is fierce, brave
Braving the world
Facing the wrath
atoning sins of her ancestors
living a misogynistic truth
Pushing through the hurdles of the society
blending in the traditions
Standing tall in the face of the lies
She is ignoring all the scars
on her face, on her soul
every pore on her body emanates her glow
She is strong…
