I was 10 years old
I packed my clothes in a bag with messy folds
When I was said as untouchable
At the age of playing with the pebbles
I was sent away from my home
Locked in the darkness alone
Inside the four muddy walla
I screamed but no one heard it at all
I was scared and it was all so scary
Everyone stopped saying me as cute little fairy
They said I am an adult now
I was shocked and I questioned how
No one replied to me with the answer
Was it just because I had mensuration?
Spending seven days in that unknown place
Not allowed to see the sun or just have a glance
Seven-night with all the fears
It felt like it had already passed seven years
My eyes were filled with tears
But look at all they don't even care
Few days before the one who kept me on his lap
I wish he could touch me at least to give a slap
I had a thirst for having my father's one sight
Still surprised that how I lost my childhood in one night
Look I am crying to see one ray of light
And to make other's cry is our culture right?
No respect, no love, no support what is that life?
Instead of having mensuration, I would rather die
I felt that gods are cheater they cheated me
All were liars who told me that I am free
I am locked in the darkness can't you see?
One day I saw a snake coming near me
The sun was waiting outside asking me to run but I was not allowed to see
But I managed to run as I had no other option
I was happy to see the light after so long
People said I have done sin and should pay for it
The snake would bite me, I would have died what do they mean?
For what I should pay the death penalty what I have done?
Having mensuration is my fortune and it is a natural process everyone should learn
How can you say that women having mensuration are impure?
You aren't dropped from the sky for sure
How can you even raise your finger telling that or this?
How can you snatch all my happiness and take it away from me?
You are telling that mothers are impure, don't you feel shame?
Thinking mensuration is bad have you lost your brain?
How can these terrible thoughts come into your mind?
If you can't see the truth, put me your glasses and see it one more time
Now tell yourself, without mensuration is it possible to have a life?
