Troubled life Printable Version PRINTABLE VERSION
by Shucheesmita, Bangladesh Jan 6, 2008
Human Rights , Gender Equality   Poetry


Life's so bad,
It should now end.

But what happens if life ends?
Lying in the grave?
Being forgotten by all?
But, is there any other way out?

I get beaten up mercilessly.
Which makes me cry hysterically.

I am hated,
So cruelly abused,
Both mentally and physically.

It didn't happen all of a sudden,
That I realized I am just a burden.
After all, I am a girl, not a boy.

I could never enjoy anything,
The beauty of nature,
The chattering of birds,
The smell of flowers… honey-suckle.

Who would believe in me?
After all, it sounds so unrealistic and filmy.

Life's really bad,
I want it to end.

[ Dedicated to South-Asian girls who face gender discrimination]

Writer Profile

I am a dreamer.
I love writing because it lets me express myself freely. I would like to become a good writer someday. I tried to be a poet but I don"t have that talent.........

To me life is like a huge room with so many windows and I want to open up as many as possible and have new experiences. Maybe because in short span of my life, I have already lived different lives.........I have to so many dreams I cherish and would like to fulfill them some day.
