Gifts Ultra Rare

Gifts Ultra Rare

A Poem by Shivam Murari
"

This poem is a challenge to all those who consider the fairer sex as less important ,or worse, a burden and commit the violent crime of female foeticide or see them with dishonoring eyes.

"

     Gifts Ultra Rare





Folded in cloth, her eyes did shine

Parabola shifted by pi, ‘the daughter is mine’

Said in front of others,

How did you feel inside?

Okay let’s make a confession

It was on mother’s guide.

 

The girl grew up,

As broadens a brook.

Papa followed Mama,

She had a beautiful look.

 

Mama hugged the life

Papa was reluctant

But the daughter believed in him

Someday, he too would be resilient.

 

Then occurred an accident,

Mother had to go.

Daughter was left with father

And he got a blow.

 

Papa, papa, she said

In everything that followed.

Little did she know,

She would never be endowed.

 

Then 10 years later,

At 4 o’ clock in evening,

Daughter didn’t come home

The thought itself was aching.

For maybe he didn’t want her

He was a dad within

Was it already too late?

Got a rush of adrenaline.

 

Went to the police,

Took help of a neighbor

Nothing came in hand,

Except the morning newspaper.

 

"10 year old, raped and murdered"

Stood the headline distinct.

The face was translucent,

But the apparel succinct.

 

Dressed in mourning stands,

He who didn’t care.

Daughters are not a burden

They are gifts ultra rare.

Respect them, accept them,

Without them, the world is despair.
