The Ugly Duckling
The swans are so beautiful, they are loved and admired by many, seeing them as they swim to and fro in their pond.
Their features are astounding, they are one of a kind, simply a blessing to the eyes.
O look at how their feathers are white and fluffy, and are filled with zest.
Their beaks are of perfect size, they are nothing but the best.
Their wings are precisely laid down on their body. When they choose to spread them open, it's really worth the while.
But poor duckling on the other hand has no secret admirer.
Duckling is always isolated because she is seen as ugly.
I've waited patiently in a lonely place
For nine long months with little space
I've stayed silently in warm embrace
No light was there to shine my face
Darkness! Or so i guess.
It's hard to recall the actual case
No one was there; not even a germ
I haven't seen anyone since i was a sperm
As time proceeded I've learnt to adapt
