Where’s my safe haven?

BY MAHIMA SETHI

New to the world,
New to the society.
Can't even speak a word,
And you left me bruised and in pain.
Oh! I was just a baby!!

Just turned six,
Just started enjoying my childhood.
Was so innocent and pious,
And you snatched my innocence.
Oh! I was just a child!!

At 13, I gained senses,
I just hit puberty.
Just started facing challenges,
And there I was with another life in me.
Oh! I was just a teenager!!

I just entered adulthood,
Ready to hold some responsibilities.
Mature enough to take decisions,
And there I was with a ripped dress of mine.
Oh! I was just a new adult!!

Later I was all set with a family,
2 tiny tots calling me mommy.
Queen of the house I was called,
And there I was in blood on the road.
Oh! I was just a mom!!

At last, had fulfilled all my duties,
Indulged in prayers and hymns.
Patiently waiting for the death to approach,
And there I was with lying helpless on the floor.
Oh! Even if I'm a grandmom!?

None of you or me are secured in this world,
Now, here I am scared at home all curled.
Such an act is a crime and not a mistake,
You've shaken my soul but I pray my strength doesn't break.
Oh society, your injustice keeps killing me,
Just like your boys, I always wish to be free.
