Ready for the world

She came like a shooting star
She didn’t had the inkling
Her life was for war.

The day she dawned
In her mother’s lap
She kissed
Showering all her love.

As doctor declared
She was a girl
Mother’s radiant eyes
Fond with love
Changed to scorn
And the people around
Was in frown
Appeared as if they were
Under the burden of tonnes.
She was ignorant of 
The rhythm
Humming around
She was crying 
in full pace
Welcoming the beautiful world 
With grace.
She never knew
The beautiful world
Would rasp her
Concealing her freedom
Reducing her to a mere object
Rejecting her from every corners.
