She Didn’t Let Them Down!!

A daughter is expected to never let down her parents... even if it means choosing marriage over a fulfilling career.

She well read all the rhymes

She well by hearted all the phonetics

But her heart glared those playing kids in slush

While carving those numbers and pronoun

She didn’t let them down!!

She kept scores good

To make their eyes and head gloomed

She barely friended anyone

Never miss real stories from India's women.

Register Now

As she has to learn all there in curriculum

Her pillow witnessed that emotional drown

But she didn’t let them down!!

That red rose perked her

That first love letter gave her goose bumps

Crush she had in her alma mater had said

“I thought you never chatter”

She was on tenth sky when  he propounded liaison

But she didn’t let them down!!

Her soul was bartered

In the name of marriage

“How blessed you are to have this family”, said Paa lordly

She wept and screamed in that golden cage

Her hard earned degree questioned

What about that Scholar’s badge? All in Vain??

Maa proudly brag how fortunate their daughter is

Those envied eyes reveal the pomp she is cherishing

But every second she die, she plead, she shouts

She is in forage of happiness, away from this materialism

But alas! She didn’t!! No..She can’t let them down!!
