Monica Gokaldas …..
Their faces oh so sad
Their eyes oh so lonely
Their voices oh so silent
Their spirits oh so cold
The girls at the TAGS
Shook up all emotions
The suffering must have
Been oh so terrible
That silenced them in
their youthful playful age
The trauma unspoken
Speaks through the eyes
The vacant corner in the heart
Must have shed oh so dry tears
Fortunate indeed we are
With love and light shared
By our bare powered hands
Trying to heal the girls there
Wounded past rubbing shoulders
With their promising present & future
Reiki gives solace to some
While some shy to acknowledge
The healing powers showered
Upon the dampened ambitions
I wish, I hope, I target their smiles
Dreaming of their happiness & joy
Their toes twisting to music notes
Swirling in a dance, step by step
The day when they shall not be shy
And will voice their thoughts in words.
Accept challenges and gain that
Much needed courageous outlook.
Turn the negative into positive
Educated, Empowered, Enhanced
Emotions flowing and healing hurts
LHSG supporting by their side
Touching life by touching lives.
Sharing and caring is celebrating
Makar Sankranti gets new meaning.
The Poem depicts the feelings experienced while giving Reiki Touch Healing to the Raped/Abused/Abandoned girls at the Talia Agler Girls Shelter,Nairobi on 13/1/16.
