Female Infanticide? It’s murder
She leapt in my arms
Eyes gleaming with amazement
I knew she couldn’t see the world, yet
She felt me, she heard me, took in the fragrance of flowers
And she yearned to learn more
Such a beautiful blessing, a boon!
My daughter is, I thought
My eyes welling up with drops of love
It was immense happiness I felt, I couldn’t contain
Joy so bright, my angel seemed to shine in light
And then I realised, it was the sun
Scorning over me, bringing memories of yesterday’s sin
A sin, or a murder? Of my unborn daughter
That I had committed loyally fulfilling my duties
Duties that destroyed me, my existance
Never a day passes by, as I regret
Dwelling and breathing in a house full of demons
Demons who shall adorn themselves in saffron and garlands,
Yet take an innocent life within me?
And I laugh bitterly, the beautiful face of my daughter before me
Thinking, one day there shall be no woman
To care, to pour kindness
To shed tears…and to give life
Will they realise then, how cruel and inhuman they were?
But there would be no one to forgive them
They shall face wrath in the Underworld
While my daughter, my child awaits me in the blissful Heaven…
