Forgive me girls, I am a man!

When she was born,
I saw her first in the bed of a hospital,
She was crying,
Her pinkish lips were trembling,
Her blue eyes were shinning with tear,
It seemed to me that,
She was trying to say something like,
'Help me out of here,
This ugly hell, I don't want to be here'
She is my little sister.
My most affectionate,
My loveliest sweet sister.

Since her birth, it has been a long time,
Nineteen years of loves,
My sweet sister has been grown up,
All that We tried to keep her away,
Away from all the nasty things.
But after nineteen years,
I am in the hospital bed again.
Beside my little sister.
Her lips are trembling,
her eyes are shinning tear,
I feel she is Uttering the words,
'Help me out of here,
This ugly hell, I don't want to be here'
Today, my sister is fighting,
fighting to survive in this earth.
Her lovely face has been burnt out,
I cannot look at her.
Her painful shout shut down my feelings,
Turn out my love and affections.

This is not a story of my sister,
This is a story of thousands of sisters,
Thousands of lovely daughters.
They are being the victim of homicidal acid burn,
They are being the victim of homicidal fire burn.
Cause they have refused the proposal of love,
They Have denied to pay dowry more.
Cause our instinct drive us,
To play such a cruel game,
We are out of mind to take revenge.
Our manliness turn us beast.
We forget that we born in their womb,
We forget that we are human being.
King of all living being.

I have no words to describe myself,
But sometimes I feel ashamed,
That I am a man, like those beast,
I have also manliness,
I have also the instinct.
Forgive me sister,
Forgive me daughter,
Forgive me mother,
Forgive me girls,
I am a man with a beast inside me.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
