A Poisonous Sting

education fear pain poetry remorse

Photographer, Rohit Rupakula



5 AM getting up
7:30 AM school
3:30 PM back home
4:30 PM onwards tuitions.


Study till you crash
Isn’t the education system too harsh?
Making donkeys out of children
And growing up; A punishment.


Sometimes embarrassed;
Humiliated, by teachers
Anger resounding
Curses pronounced.


Doesn’t he need a happy life?
We’ve ensured him so much strife
Punishment melted in unfair ways
Where disobeying teachers is a crime.


Isolation; Shaken in a darkened corner,
Emotional blackmail; parental complaints
Are few strategies to make him pay
Is it necessary we punish an innocent soul?


Driven over to suicides
Their patience wearing thin
For when all is said and done
I can’t help being overwhelmed.


Rohit Rupakula, is my student. A person full of life and possessor of a killer smile. What a proud moment it is today for me(mentor) today to use the photograph clicked by him(my student).
