The first week was up, You were so excited; That month, Lullabies were all you recited. My mouth had now developed, I thought I was like your small gift in an envelope. Month two was on the go, Mom knew now my heart was to fully grow; And it belonged to you all, Including my elder bro. It was all I had to give for now, But little did I know; My heart had now started beating slow. Clasping those unformed arms & legs; I realized, The girl in me was not your pride. Why Father? Why? Couldn't you hear my mute cry? Even before I could open my eyes, you proved genders don’t equalize. In my last breath, all I do is wish you happiness, Because showing no humanity is a sign only of weakness.
