Children, Versification

Laughter #Poem #WednesdayVerses #Ishithaa


Luckless child, orphaned
A childhood snatched away
Unseen at night, an accident
Girl child left behind,
Heartbroken, shook to the core
Tsk tsked the world, pitifully
Even in death, unable to cry
Rejected by own emotions, laughter mocked.

Laughter they say is the medicine for all ailments. What about those who cannot cry? What does the world make of them? This is what I have tried to portray in this short poem. Do you know of someone who cannot cry no matter what happens? I know someone and I know for a fact that her life is tough especially considering the people who can be nasty about it. 

Linking this with #WednesdayVerses as I join Vinay and Reema on a weekly journey of poems. Prompt for this week is Laughter. You can check out some of the other poems written on Ishithaa for Wednesday Verses

Writing to me is therapy, it frightens and comforts at the same time. Liberates like nothing else. A book in my own name is a dream, but a bigger dream would be to write something that haunts the reader even after the last page is turned and the book is shut. I enjoy reading and music, spending time with family whilst battling my social awkwardness.

  1. Beautiful take on the prompt. It is hard for a lot of people especially those who have endured abuse to understand and express their emotions. I see a lot of them in therapy and usually, they express emotional extremes without a clear understanding of any of it.

  2. Sometimes, it is very difficult to cry, I think. There’s an overwhelming urge to do so, but no. I’ve felt that once or twice and been at a loss for what to do. Poignantly portrayed.
