I was born a girl child
Who was pampered by everyone
But as I grew old, I became the bad daughter and bad sister
I could not do this and could not do that.
I grew to be a beautiful bride
And left my home for good.
In my new home
I was welcomed with loving arms.
But as days passed, I became the bad daughter-in-law and wife
I could not do this right
And did everything wrong.
Then a curse fell on me
I could not bear a child they said.
But technology came to my aid
I became a mother.
But still, I was not good.
I was horrible as can be
But I stood up and faced the world.
Then they called me rude and unmannered
And not worthy of anything.
Now I share my half home with my better half.
The allegations have made me strong
I know now that I am human as they are
With flaws that they have
But with a golden heart, they lack.
I want to be free
Break the shackled that binds me.
Let me go if I am so bad, I say
But they keep mum
Why? I ask
But there is no answer only frozen silence.
