Nisha is dead Ma

Ma.Ma. Nisha is dead Ma.
She is dead Ma.
No. She didn't die a natural death.
'They' killed her Ma. They killed her.

Ma many Nishas died in december and before..
You remember?
Tired Nishas returning home from work
Small,laughing Nishas..
whose young blood lay scattered all over.
Ma they killed them
They killed her...
Now its me and other Nishas.

Many Nishas were killed..will be killed.
You know, 'they' want to be heard
But I heard only the dying wail of dying Nishas.
The wail was forgotten after december...
So they killed more Nishas in march and now again.

They were mere Nishas; not Gandhiji, Indira or Rajeev
Not even Dawood or a Saddam.
All Nishas await the same fate..
Do they Ma?
What will you do of your Nisha? Ma??
?????????????????????????????

y is there an underlying sadness or despair in every poem? its more like something wants to be said and the unability to do so. kudos to you Ma'm your able to touch the reader.
that is any great pet's trait!

dear genius (TS),
thanx for telling me that i am a "pet". and for me sadness is just so unexpressable...so all poems have underlying sadness.

Liked the line "'They' want to be heard." So much meaning...

aditya,
people unfortunately believe that violence and the chaos associated with it will help them forward their grievances and cause. thats why "they want to be heard".
