Father, mother, son and daughter,
Was the family of four,
They lived together happily,
And prosperity galore!
But little knew the outside world,
The secret sad story of the girl!
Shedding tears every night,
She used to make her sleep,
You will never have any idea,
As to how much she would weep.
Long promotes the world,
The message of “Save the girl child”
The response of the society has always been mild.
Such similar story was of the girl,
She hided all the tears away,
And managed all the hurl.
Her brother was considered lucky,
While she was a bad omen,
She promised to be never like her mom,
Once she’s a women.
The son was rewarded each time he scored in the spellings test,
While her state level trophies in a small cupboard would be allowed to rest.
She was restricted going out after 8,
While her brother could return home late,
He was gifted his own chauffeur.
While the girl had to stand in queues,
Struggling to reach for supper.
The only favour they did,
Was providing her mere education,
No other long drives, no shopping
There basically seemed a lack of affection.
No one will never know how difficult being a girl is;
Specially in a male dominant society,
You can never travel safely,
Or even climb up the tree,
This is how the world works behind the curtain,
The foetuses of several girl children remain uncertain.
According to the world,
It was still a family of four
Where happiness galore.
And where no one knew how much the eyes of the girl would sore.
~Something that you feel and hide. 🙂
