Bystander: When She Suffers....

She was beaten and slapped,
For 'Dowry',by her 'prestigious' husband,
And she shouted for help,
But I couldn't, I was a Bystander...
Her genitals were touched and pressed,
For 'pleasure', by inhuman wild crowd,
And she died crying for rescue,
But I couldn't, I was a bystander...
Her cloths removed, body burnt,
For being a 'witch', by 'God-like' society,
And she screamed for painless death,
Still I couldn't, I was a bystander...
My turn to undergo everything,
For being a 'women', by 'Almighty-men',
And I became an 'object', no help,
Only laughs and whistles,
As everyone was a bystander...
