Premature Baby Killings - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

I want to take birth,
Humble wish to come on earth
See for self and breathe fresh air,
Is it not right for baby girl chance fair?

Is baby boom a great curse?
Does it burden people with purse?
Situation out of control and worse,
People are riding on wrong horse,

No fair assessment and not aware,
Why then think with split hair,
Premature death before simple birth,
Are baby girl not that much worth?

We prove life line for parent,
Kind gesture and quality inherent,
Do the flowers stop fragrance?
Only and only because of ignorance,

Let good counsel prevail,
Afford us opportunity avail,
It is against HIS noble wish,
Draining out water meant for fish,

Nothing will go against destined way,
Futile attempts will no more pay,
It is matter not for your say,
Momentary halt but can’t throw us away,

We want to come, hear our voice,
Not much dislike and silent noise,
Killing unnecessary and wrong choice,
Theory may prove burden as wrong poise
