She brought her in this world

Savoring dream

for full nine months.

A single bullet pierced her torso

Breaching her life forever.

Terrified she watched

her flesh lying numb.

The strong hands that raised her

Trembled with fear

Burying her in soil

Parting forever.

Her Dream ceases to exist.
