Hope smothered

I wrote this poem after hearing about the incident that recently occured at a school in Bangalore where a staff of the school raped a 6 year old.

Didn't you see the twinkle in her eyes?
Didn't you see hope reflecting on her face?
Didn't you see the flutter in her wings,
to unveil all that is beautiful in this world?

How could you change that twinkle to an ember?
How could you put off that hope?
How could you cut off her wings,
kill her soul with such a hideous act of your lust?
