Why did I write the Dark Daughter,
Do you know it,
The secrets of it?
The Dark Daughter is my love of art,
Art and sculpture,
The terracotta plates
On the temple walls.
The Dark Daughter is my mythical text,
A work aesthetic, artistic,
Mythical and symbolical,
Imagistic and feminine.
The Dark Daughter is a work full of
Filial love and affection,
Sympathy and sensibility,
My fascination for the daughter.
My maya for her, you do not know,
Had you a daughter,
You would have,
Could have known, felt at least.
The dark Daughter represents it womankind,
A mother in the birth pangs,
In the labour room
Writhing, bearing pains of creation.
A poor girl see in the image of hers
In the Dark Daughter,
A mother turning skeleton
Due to malnutrition and poverty.
The inhuman tortures on womankind
Seen in terms of struggle and silent suffering,
Her trouble, tribulation,
I have tried to sketch.
The life of a woman none knows it,
None can predict about,
The fate-lines of hers,
The things written.
