I was born in the clan of humans,
My eyes twinkled to see my domain,
I had not arrived with dreams here,
But I came to dig out this fantasy,
They snapped my glitter & charm,
They bruised me and hit me hard,
WELL because I was a girl – my fault.
They pushed me to corners to squall,
They snatched my scent and aroma,
I was disheartened and broken apart,.
Then my pith craved to never bloom.
Because I was a girl – My Fault.
A world of new dreams was revealed,
knotted and hitched to new realities,
seemed a horrid world within a terrible one,
Was squelched and crushed day and night,
Because I was a girl- My fault
My world was vandalized once for all,
My burned figure bid adieu to all,
First ever smiled on a journey to the grave,
for I was freed from all the shackles-for My fault,
But, then I sobbed in my lonely grave,
For that tender soul I had left alone,
My only daughter in ruthless hands,
I pray for her journey hither,in my arms,
As I wish she never endures the pain
Because she is a girl – Her fault.
