Don'T Despise Me Poem by Akka Mahadevi

Don'T Despise Me

Rating: 2.5


Don't despise me as
She who has no one
I'm not one to be afraid,
Whatever you do.
I exist chewing dry leaves.
My life resting on a knife edge
If you must torment me,
Chennamallikarjuna,
My life, my body
I'll offer you and be cleansed.
