Cost of a human life- Poem
In the hours of night when the world is sound asleep
Somewhere a girl looks out her window & silently weeps.
The sky looks dark without a ray of hope
She embraces herself trying to cope.
She looks in the mirror & sees a face full of innocence
But Her eyes look haunted with tragic and grievance.
She goes around the day being strong and brave
When night comes along for her parents she craves.
She screams to God to answer her prayers
She pleads & cries to have what was once hers.
But there is no regaining or replacement for what she has lost
Thats how much a human life costs!
