My mother curses the rapists,
blames the government for avoiding
the death punishment that
should be given to such animals.
She always does this—
blames the police—
but she never admits
her own deliberate
similar kind of ‘mistake’.
She asked me to not tell anybody
and to forget the whole incident
of the two attempts
that I had to experience when
I was 5 and then 13.
She depicts she has changed
and puts all the blame
on the rapist and the government
but doesn’t accept her mistake,
that she wronged me by her ignorance.
My father, when he first was informed of this
blamed me why I didn’t tell him earlier
but I know he would have done nothing
as it is not in his behavior
to take action.
He can just please
by uttering administrative words.
All of them are hypocrites.
They are not my parents but society.
