Deformities - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

I protested for being foolishly dragged into
Even though it was false and untrue
They took me as eve teaser and cornered
I was soon to be beaten and tortured

I looked at her and begged
She was all for smile and managed
It was fault with my eyes which closed and opened often
People took it as an attempt to molest even

I helplessly tried to convince
Proved that I had no slight idea even to evince
But it cut little ice for deep mistrust
I was offered to prove more for the trust

Well now I was sure of getting no kicks
As I was speaking with truth and playing no tricks
It had nothing to do with eye blinking to her
As it had been weakness for me to suffer

I blinked again but they did not get furious
Now I was made fun object and became famous
They all laughed at me and cut jokes
Before sometimes ago they were all ready to offer strokes

It happens to many people and put them into trouble
I have come out safely after making great struggle
I get puzzled sometimes and shiver
As slight thought itself pushes me with fever

To some it may look a funny story
But I am the only one to feel sorry
For a boy it may be little cause to worry
But think if a girl I she has same thing to carry

There are many deformities in body
It may crate cause of displeasure to somebody
But think of an individual who has no control over
We need to take care of them and provide protection or cover

    Tribhawan Kaul Last but one stanza made me to think as to what could have happen if a girl had this deformity. However, your poems have a flow of its own. and I always like to read. :) 19 minutes ago • Unlike • 1 (Report) Reply

    Floy Dy Ra Dear Hasmukhji, your poem is a very thoughtful one with good flow. But some deformities regular cursed by typing could have been identified...But think if a girl I (was) she has some thing to carry is the was missing? If not can you explain?

    There is no cause to blame the unfortunate, but human nature being as it is sometimes comes to shame. Your poetry often serves us all in advisory ways, I thank you for it. Best wishes, Mary Ann
