She wears darkness to cover her soul.

By Taruni Bajaj
She wears darkness to cover her soul. 
Like many indescribable feelings willing to release out in whole.
Waiting for mended wings, ready to fly again.
And i saw her rising like never seen before.
There were pains, there were cries,
I witnessed her lone with no one besides.
She left them all who left her in fire.
Who saw her cold laugh but no tears of sapphire
You'll never know how she lived all night breakdowns.
Her homies saw her fighting for her life at those death grounds.
You may feel her words sweet, gentle or kind;
She feels proud for the violence she paid behind.
She knows her worth well, don't you dare to let her down,
She owns the brightest part of sky, the full phase moon wearing her crown.
You can't break her, you don't own that power to,
She had walked through the fire, she can burn the fire in you.
We all are fighting buds, tho we never shout out loud,
She too fought for herself from herself among that crowd.
Although, she's just a dust of storm, who didn't give up at the time of crisis,
She too bows her head to the world who're surviving their untold miseries.
