It was a perfect summer day the sunlight suits word by word chord by chord- the songs that was aired on TV; the women singers sang with guitars.

On the other side of the world parallel to where I was the moon weeps silently.

After the stars die away like a dream-that night a new morn destined to mourn and no wonder can betide- another wonman will die-of stoning.

The dust on the cell walls trembled on the air as the man spoke to her the vedict: "...and you will be stoned to death."

She...was mocked,sentenced- an adulterer...

One drop of nervous rises until it slowly grew... consumed the core of her soul making her lesser than a mole inside that dark prison room.

The sad song of her heart plays- she might be begging to the face of time to stop...who knows...

I wonder what was in the edge of her scared-dimmed eyes...

Could it be the picture of her family? her children...? or a moment of her precious moments packed in a glance of deep sorrow.

Oh woman torn before the world's eye the time had finally come...

She was dragged out of cell... dressed in white,chained... Her head covered with white cloth that hid her tears when she was ditched up to her chest.

Not far distant was a pile of stone not so big and not so small...

One picked and start to lead the throwing of stones into her he head No one stop until the blood continously drops from her crown that sways backward everytime she wa hit...

Her final gasp of sir... 'twas when the sun growl to the birds, they took her out of the hole and laid...on the sand... D E A D...

and on the other side of the earth was a perfect summer night...

People were feasting the finest fruits of the earth's treasure could ever give opposite to what is happenning on the other side of the globe...

when the moon silently weeps...

A poem that doesn't only tell a story but the emotions of the attitude toward this horrific events. Stoning doesn't only kill the women being stoned, rather it causes the death to the idea of equality, rights, and overall human life. Thanks for exploring this issue that has been a horrific crime for thousands of years.
