Will She Live?

Will She Live? short poem

Photo by dorena-wm

Darkness engulfs her
She wants to live
It’s her right
Will she be able to see the light
Of the world outside
Or will there be female foeticide?
I want to know
Will she be able to see her parents
Will she sleep in her mother’s arms
Or will she just die like that
Will she never be touched?
Will she never be loved?
Will she be able to laugh?
Or for her will there be only faugh?
Will she walk?
Will she talk?
Or will the parents balk
To bring her to this earth
She wants to live her life
She wants to get her right
She wants to see day and night
She wants to have a fight
Most of all I am worried

Whereby: The scent of your breath love dances like a butterfly. Drenched in your raining desire lush spring awaits. Yearnings whispered vigorously. The sun kissed golden season’s ancient story filled with certainty and uncertainty. Every word I utter reflects you.
