Letter of A Girl
This is a letter by a girl going to be born in India. This India’s daughter is asking for some explanations from God before her birth. Will she get her answer?
Your messenger came and told me to go there,
to India the country known for its heritage and culture rare.
But before coming to life on earth,
before appearing in my human birth,
I want to ask some necessary questions,
and hope for your thorough explanation.
The person you have selected to be my father,
is hoping for a son or is ready for a daughter?
lest he would try to kill me before birth,
and cancelled my only chance to see your earth.
I also need your assurance on wounds & bruise,
would I be safe from child sexual abuse,
See don’t think that I am a bit crazy and rude,
My concerns are genuine since I have only one childhood.
As a teenager would my future be secure,
or would a one sided lover attack my face with an acid pure
ruining my life for a moment’s attraction,
You must build something for their distraction.
Raping a woman have become a task of pride,
I wouldn’t want to be sweet in reach of flies’ stride.
I just want to be sure for my future,
People there have become some different creature,
I am a creative person,you can see I talk in rhyme,
so don’t want to be secluded as some one’s wife in my prime.
If you are sending me, send me to the world of equality,
and not in the world of crimes,insult and cruelty.
I have dreams to fulfill after my birth,
to be among people who understand my worth.
I am ready to be daughter,a sister, a lover,a wife and a mother,
but I don’t want anybody to be the judge of my attitude and character.
I think I have asked for so much, so direct ,
but I am a woman I would be happy with just some respect.
Waiting for your reply.
Yours own creation,
God don’t answer everything some answers he has left for us to search. Can we guarantee her a safe life in this country? Its Women’s Day today so try to find answers for her questions.
