I lay there, just born,
Cold to my bones,
Lonely & uncared,
Nobody to ask how I fared,
Being haunted by the fear,
Of hate, rejection & leer,
Wrapped in a blanket of despair,
Wondering why life is so unfair,
Missing the warmth of her love & care,
Who till now shielded me inside of her,
Whom I long to call ‘Mother’.
Why do angry faces hover?
Why do Father want to smother?
How have I failed you, O Mother?
Do you love only my brother?
Gimme a chance to sprout a feather,
Will be your shade in every weather,
Let me grow up as your daughter,
Promise to fill your home with laughter,
Let this bud bloom into a flower,
Will spread its fragrance forever,
Love on you, ever & ever, I shall shower.
Oh Mother…….please let me live awhile.
