Maa, I remember you told me not to raise my voice,

I did exactly the same and I got raped.
 
Maa, I remember you told me to trust the police,
I did exactly the same and I got raped.
 
Maa, I remember you told me that one can find peace in temple,
I don’t know why I found no peace there.
 
Maa, I remember you told me that God lives in temple,
I saw no God coming to help me.
 
Maa, I remember you told me Poojari uncle had heart to heart connection with god,
I believed the same and I got raped.
 
Maa, I remember you told me that I am the strongest,
Yes, I am but after all I am just a kid.
 
Maa, I remember you told me that politicians are the leaders of this world,
I believed that and all I got was fake sympathy.
 
Maa, I remember you told me that you will be there for me always,
I searched for you here and there but you weren’t.
 
But I am strongest Maa. They needed eight people just to handle me. I didn’t speak a word. They did everything they were not allowed to do still I didn’t speak a word. Maa, you always say God listens to our prayers. I’d ask him to protect children as we are small and can’t protect ourselves. When no one else can, you have to help.
