(2nd Annual Issue Competition Poem)
A marriage scene in the family
House glowing bright with relatives
The bride sad with her heart crying heavily
She was twelve , with dolls in her shelves .
She was forced to enter into a new world About which she was totally unaware
Had to become a single mother , pain untold
With only white and nothing else to wear .
She was forced into a corner of the house
Abandoned by society, her duty was just to
Covered with a white cloth , without a
Neither a toy to play nor a book .
Sudden visit of her brother
He was dead inside to see her
No more a sister , she was a mother
He regretted that he couldn’t fight for her .
She cried to take her away
From the misery in that house
He accepted without any delay
Her only request was to wear a blouse .
Her wish was to stay fully dressed
Which would give her a decent end
The grief she expressed
Has now become our vogue and our trend .
