Songs Of An Abandoned Girl - Poem by Bireswar Halder

After a long sufferings and arduous pursuit,
Day and night in your darken womb alone
With full of abominable filth all around
Ultimately I cried out with joy for liberation.

Alas! Are you not happy to see my divine face?
Why do you get so frightened, dear mom
Why do you run alone in woo hours desperately
With your new born girl – a symbol of love.

Finally, you threw me in an abandoned dustbin,
I prayed politely, mom, not to leave me, please
I held your finger tightly for hugging me once
I don`t know what made you so cruel, dear mom.

Your chest is the safest and comfortable place
Its like a shield against all odds to protect me
Mother`s breast milk is first and pure food for kids
Unfortunately you have deprived all that I need.

Mom, why did you leave me in dustbin?
What for – Is it a fear of social recognition?
Why did make me an orphan – an abandoned?
Have you ever thought how I will survive?

Dear Mom, come back again and let me live, please
Let`s fight together for our future and survival
I promise, mom, I will never ask for my identity
You are heaven - please don`t make me an orphan.
