I'M HIS PEARL.......


Warmth of her shelter,
Sound of her laughter.....
Singing a lullaby,
Love as vast as sky.....
They came to know,
I was a girl child,
& Acted so wild.....
Killing of maternity,
She wanted to name me,
"AYUSHMATI" (person who has a long life)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Running on dew,
Merrily I grew.....
Carried pretty woolen doll,
'Sakhi' whom I use to call.....
Little tender feet,
Walking under suns heat,
Soft, soothing hand,
Carrying hot brick & sand.....
Sad truth of this era,
I'm "SARAH" (princess,happy)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
What's beyond horizon?
I'm eager,
Jaunty as a deer,
Still a teenager.....
Learning is my age,
Tied in a knot of marriage,
Why so early?
I'm "AOLANI" (cloud of heaven)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Vowing 7 Promises,
Always was My dream,
Falling in Love,
As beautiful as a stream.....
Burned me alive,
How can I survive?
Senseless Dowry,
All the brutality, cruelty.....
Hands with colorful Henna,
I'm "NIRVANA" (deep silence, ultimate bliss)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Purposive filthy touch,
No one could I clutch.....
Ripped me,
Tore me,
Restless soul,
Awaiting for Justice,
Justice-slower than a tortoise,
Ears-that can't hear painful voice.....
I was & am "APARAJITA" (undefeated)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I'm Loving, Caring, Kind,
But Never Ever try to Bind!
Flight of a Bird,
FREEDOM that's MY WORD!
I'M GODS "PEARL",
BLESSED BEING A GIRL!!!
