Shall I Quit?

by Shubh Rana
(Vadodara , Gujarat, India)

Shall I quit?
with the brimming sea
full of tears and taunts
and injustices with me

I have my restraints
I lie in the garden of cactuses
for my abased flower pots
stand behind the carved fences

The unwanted pupils stared me
they meandered my happiness
tears filled my dry eyes
when they tricked me like a mess

Their fingers inspecting me
with no one by my side
I lied entangled in their arms
alone in the soulless night

The grilled bars
cant they just be fair?
in the isolated hall
for turning my dreams into a nightmare

Here I move ahead
the tides injuring me
I stand half wet
‘death’ is all I see

Till waist then neck
drowned in the sorrows
here I take my last breath
I sink with all my horrors

settling down and down
with no fingers and arms
just like the way was born
I quit all still and calm.

Its too good. Like in this season of crimes against women and the delay & denial of the judiciary makes this poem darn applicable. Be it the nirbhaya case or the Kathua case...all the victims or the survivors had to face was injustice and death...❤
