honor killing

and another sun

succumbed to despair

and another moon

shunned away

and another sky

turned to ashes

and all the stars

shattered to dust

and all the heavens

shaken to core

but the mighty earth

with ‘mighty’ beings

remained aloof

of crimes committed

in darkest hours

grim tales

of motherland

silent burials

of honor and pride

odes to our

daughters plight
