The Best Poem Of Uma Ram

The Maid's Daughter

A hallucination
To those born with
Silver Spoons….
An unrealistic truth,
To those dominating
Mistresses, shimmering in
Golden body lotions;
Of the girl child,
Still entangled
In brimming poverty;
With a helpless mother-
Reaping the fruits
Of her domestic toils;
At the cost of her dreams…
As a bonded child labour,
Away from her home;
She sweeps and mops,
Cleans and washes,
Does the dishes;
Burying her wishes;
For the education
Of her brothers,
as a bonded child labour,
Away from her home,
Contented with
Discarded old clothes,
And excited with,
The broken toys;
Consoling her stomach,
With the leftover meals,
With a longing heart,
For the education;
Her brothers get,
Yearning eyes, for-
The her mistress’ off springs,
The delicious foods they eat,
The gorgeous dresses they wear,
The expensive toys they play,
The pampered care they get,
With sighs for
The wasted food,
In the garbage…
Continuing her routines,
To educate her brothers,
Growing up to be
A maid serving,
Yet another household,
With her brother's wife
To take over her duties,
Who too…
Sweeps and mops,
Cleans and washes,
Does the dishes,
Burying her wishes;
To aid her family,
At the cost of her dreams…….
