Virgin Worth Of An Inauspicious Charm


Prostitution – is the act of providing sexual services to another person in return of a payment. The estimated annual revenue generated by global prostitution is over $100 billion.

The women forced into prostitution witness violence, molestation, harassment and social disrespect. Risks of physical contamination and mental dejection are far than worse.

In India and Thailand, about 40% child prostitutes exist.

Prostitution is sometimes referred to as “the oldest profession”.

…or is it “the oldest scar” on the face of our society.





Prisoners of inauspicious charm, so burdened.

Torn away pieces of flesh, still glittering.

Eyes see a world so flushed with infection.

Your deeds leave me an existence so corrupting.

Protectors of morality and society pundits.

Lurking in the darkest alleys with masked lust.

They outcast us from their ridiculous kingdom.

Scavengers of revere, they call themselves just.

Reflections of a battered self seen every time,

in the shimmering smiles of tainted cupidity.

This dishonor is not chosen, never cherished.

To break a spirit every night, needs some audacity.

I still dream of a day in my conscious disbelief.

When this body would be untouched for a night.

Crucified self-respect for illustrious sinners.

My virgin worth is a woman’s real plight.

    Another scary reality we prefer looking away from.
    It kills something.

    its the oldest scar, a profession that should not have come to existence at all.

      Society must not be ashamed of them…but ashamed of its inability to save them.

    I have no words, save yours “Society must not be ashamed of them…but ashamed of its inability to save them.” Very sad, but if no one speaks up how will anything ever change? Thank you for speaking up Prashant!!

      People would think that this is a profession they take for the quick money or something else. They have to understand that they had not been given the right options in life or perhaps they were too far away from their battered conscience.

      Thank you Christina for all the support

    The way you have written this is powerful and it leaves a deep mark.
    One important facet you have highlighted..”Protectors of morality and society pundits”….these so-called protectors are themselves often inolved in this trade.
    My fav lines which touched deeps of my heart- “To break a spirit every night, needs some audacity”.
    We write on the same wavelength exploring our individual mind of words.
    I salute you for this poetry!

        Your poem is self-explanatory in so many ways. Very profound. It forces one to think. You can’t ignore the issue after reading such hard-hitting words.
        Keep up the ownderful work! When your daughters grow up they will be mighty proud of their dad.
        Happy blogging to you too!

    Having worked with children forced into prostitution (boys, too), I will add another layer of horror. All too often this cycle starts with incest, a child, even infants, being raped and molested by family members, usually with full knowledge of the family! The issue of sexual slavery crosses all strata of society and has always existed. Until humanity has put an end to this, there will never be the peace that we long for. How could I ever feel totally peaceful knowing that such actions occur with each tick of the clock. Please keep writing what we all would prefer not to think about. I honor you before Source for your willingness to speak out about the unacceptable. hugs, pat

      Raising our own kids we have come to face this question so very often. It is not that only negativity is injected but it is this concern after knowing what our surroundings have become capable of. There is this constant lingering fear.

      Prostitution has so many unearthed reasons and realities. But why has it not been eradicated is the biggest concern. Something somewhere is terribly wrong.
