Stigma - Poem by Ajit Das

I was born with a tattoo -
the stigma of my birth
which I try to erase,
thinking it is skin deep.
But, to my horror,
I find it deeply scrawled.
The last effort to repay the price
for starting a new life fails;
my cursed organs don't sell
in hospitals or in black market.

* Story of one, socially inscribed
