Abstract


Mother..I Want To Be Born

Mother..I Want To Be Born

2 mins 752 2 mins 752

Mother, I know, why people say that love is blind…

Because I breathe in your womb and stay in your mind...

You love me, you laugh for me, you cry for me…

Although you have not seen me yet, I know that you can die for me..


Mother, I can feel your love, so light, so soft like a feather...

I am happy, I am in you, I am lucky, we are together..

When I will come in this world, you’ll welcome me by taking me in your lap.

I will play with your hair and you will kiss my forehead when I’ll take a nap.


Just the way, you love me now by not eating food without me. 

I’ll do the same when I am born, I will never let you be hungry. 

Mother… I’ve heard about deep blue sea, I’ve heard about the endless sky.

I’ve heard about the fishes which swim, I’ve heard about the birds that fly.

Mother, I want to feel them, mother… I want to see…

Mother, when I am born, will you introduce them to me..???


My dear mother, why did you do this to me?

I wanted to live with you, I wanted you to live with me.

Why did you kill me mother, why did you slaughter..?

Was it because I was taking birth as your daughter?

Mother, just because, I was not taking birth as your son.

You have ended my life even before it had begun…


(Female foeticide, dowry deaths, and rape…

From womb to the world - a woman is nowhere safe...)
