A dirge from Aasifa

A dirge from Aasifa
Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

I was a pure-hearted soul,

Innocence would live in myself.

I was a girl,

Who always kept a stoic attitude.

I was a girl,

Of a proud nation.

I was a girl,

Who always remained loyal to her family.

 

Never had I thought of,

Becoming prey to some savages.

Never had I thought of,

Undergoing something strange.

Never had I thought of,

Reaching death this way!

Never had I thought of,

Seeing my corpse lying in the woods!

Never had I thought of people creating hullabaloo-

In favour of my culprits who spoiled my fragile soul!

Never had I thought of people deferring punishment for the culprits.

 

But-

I was born to teach you a lesson.

I was born to protect the other same like me.

And-

I was born to be remembered each passing day!
