Girl Child #Poem

By Pawani Mathur:

When she was born,
they all had mourned

 

 

 

 

 

 

But they sent her to school
because everyone did;
And they taught her to cook
because she needed it

She worked hard at home,
But no one cared
‘God’ had made her a woman
she was born a sinner

She was unwanted
A burden but they kept her all along
There was a house to look after,
After all;

She was the keeper of the house
but the house was not her keeper
she was to go away one day
and so she did

They sent her away
away forever
She did what she did in her own home
only for different people and a new home

She did it all
she did it everywhere
But at the end of the day
She belonged nowhere
