# BEYOND HORIZON # HONOR KILLINGS

AND NAMED IT AS............

LOVE.......
Prime feeling to ignite in a mind,
An emotion not limited to mankind.......

Sowing the love seed,
Into the pure heart of a kid,
Love each one around,
It's a LIFE'S Base,Our Ground............

Power to immerse living being,
No fear of drowning.................

Small,STRONG word,
Won't break by any SWORD........
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
But It Did,YES IT DID!
By SWORD of HATE.

We loved each other,
RELIGION,CASTE did not matter.

POISON of Hate,
CURSE to our LOVE,
Tried to BREAK,
We stood with FORTITUDE,
Front of MISGUIDED Attitude.

Flesh tore apart by RUTHLESS guns,
SOULS ripped by CLOSED ONES.........

(MIS)BELIEFS of Society,
An ILLUSION of "UNITY IN DIVERSITY",
CREMATED Love: Our IDENTITY.

LIGHT of LOVE,
BLOWN into SMOKE.............

(BRUTAL) FUNERAL of LOVE, of FEELINGS,
And Named It As "HONOR KILLINGS"......................

Hey,
Wooww what a post, admired every bit of it, You would'nt believe but I was myself about to pen down something about honor killing, As today I read a news on a murder done on the name of honor killing in hindustan times, where a brother killed her sister who eloped with her husband, Man ... but after reading this I wont be able to write anything you expressed everything, It's so sad, to end people's life in the name of honor when it is just their dissatisfied ego and their cowardice to accept a single fact that every individual has a right to take decisions in their life.... Its just so sad !!!

Rajat said...

what they call as 'honor killing' is literally killing of the honor of humanity.

A well put thought..

Vishal Raj said...

This is a sad truth. And its not just about honor killing, but also that our society following the dogmatic principles blindly. It is really depressing to accept that, love, the most important factor in human life is rarely given its due worth while other lesser important factors aka religion, caste, culture, language, locality etc. become a hurdle of life, and more important.

Actions are needed to stop such brutal acts....
There is no love where there is ego..

a powerfuly writen. Its sad & shameful dat our own people kill in d name of honor. Dey forget wat dey do is much disgraceful. They need a psychatrist.

Anonymous Someone said...

you struck powerful chords, it is beautiful.

Sad that we prejudice love and compare it. Sad that society cannot live in peace and harmony. Sad that religion and caste come in between two hearts, sad that lovers bleed, for loving.

Blasphemous Aesthete
