Tarnished Motherhood - Poem by Bireswar Halder
Today I am free, free from all earthly ties,
No bondage, no barrier as I am limitless
I can fly miles after miles wherever I wish
And you cannot touch me any more.
Don`t kneel down near the grave and cry
I am no more there, far away from you
Don`t call me your daughter again
As you will get no response from the grave
I dreamt of a sweet home like others do
And I reposed all hope on you for a peaceful life
But alas! You played a cruel trick with my life
Making sweet dreams collapse into pieces
I know you are sunk in ambition for wealth
Climbing on others as a ladder to scale the peaks
No sympathy, no love and affection for me
Only apathy and hatred showered on me.
I had to fight the odds of life from childhood
None I found to share my grief and pain
What made you bare the fangs to kill me, dear mom?
Your motherhood sullies the earth in jet-black
Shed no tears, no more laments please
A life of such wanton rapacity never writes peace
Think once and be ready for the final judgement
As like everyone, you too will derive what you gave.
