Acid Attack

Poem By Asit Kumar Sanyal

Three men threw acid on her face
It burnt her face, ears and throat
But she sustained the severe burns
Her face disfigured
became blind in one eye
lost her speech.

After 3o plus surgeries
she spoke
but did not get her lost vision
Her face remained scarred.

Her attackers were arrested and booked
But came out on bail
and roaming free since then.

When she was attacked,
she was bold and beautiful
A courageous 18-year-old girl
enthusiastic about life.

During her struggle
a friend request came to her
From an engineer
In Facebook account
She accepted
met him in real life too
Slowly she fell in love
and married him.

She is now happy
said, my bad days are over
I see a bright future ahead of me.
