My Daughter, You Are Not My Burden, As They Used To Misinform And Misinterpret It - Poem by Bijay Kant Dubey

My daughter, who says it,
You are my burden,
The load to be disposed off,
My daughter, who says it,
You are my burden,
The load overhead,
The burden to be dispensed with,
The debt to be cleared,
The loan to be met,
My daughter
And if they,
Let them,
You are my daughter,
not theirs,
You are my daughter,
Not theirs,
For which
What maya
Will they have
For the daughter of
Another person,
What maya
Will they understand,
Come to feel,
My daughter,
They are
The patriarchal men
Cannot feel the pains
Of maternity?
