O Mother! No More Fairy Tales Please! - Poem by bakuli bhakali
O mother! No more fairy tales, please!
I don’t want to consume my entire life
In the delusion of prince charming
No such fabled being subsists.
Little lullabies will work instead!
O mother! No more makeup, please!
I look freak in it.
Let the world see me in me.
O mother! No more quaking, please!
Speak not of fear
I dare to go bare
Without being shadowed by my father, brother and my husband.
O mother! Whisper not!
There’s none to fear.
The world is us, just us.
As they’re too
Just, a part of us.
My brother is your son
My father was his mother’s
And so was our grandfather.
The world moves no farther.
