Lonely she was,

Deprived, disillusioned and devoid;

Of the rights which she had

But of which she never knew.


A girl, she was;

The bearer of life.

Yet bereaved of her desires and dreams,

Looked down upon by the so-called Patriarchal Society.


She dreamt of books and wished to write,

But no, how could she

It would make her less eligible to become a bride.


She had no right to dream,

For she was a girl;

The bearer of life,

Whose own life was not hers'.
