I saw them decorating the whole place,
& decorating me;
the thing to be sold,
the burden which since my birth they did hold,
the burden from which today they will get free...
I saw them giving me so many blessings,
& also listened to their relaxed breathings,
Cause their biggest tension is soon going to end,
In my whole life after those seven rounds I found them most relaxed...
I saw them giving my hands in the hands of a boy, to me a stranger,
I wonder are they the same who kept me away from boys, from that lover?
I saw them packing in my bag
so much of gold & insurance paper of the new dowry's car,
but they forget my love, my guitar,
I saw people asking them -
"Does she know cooking?
Is she good at house holding?"
But nobody bothered to ask,
Was I still breathing???
& at last tearing they took me to a car,
& told me,
"Take care of your new family,
& your husband"
the one who has got a new servant!!!
As I looked in the car I saw them smiling cruelly,
& as I looked back,
I saw them smiling,
& those momentary crocodile's tears ending,
I saw them relaxed & calm ,
Having got freedom of the biggest burden & a very big duty...
I have seen my elders guiding me every time that I will have to go to family of my in-laws...
It's just because of these guidelines & the destructed marriage lives around me that I'm having a big phobia of marriage, & these days am unable to sleep because of nightmares of my own wedding, which is equal to my destruction...
This is the form of the insecurity & fear I felt in my dream...
Hope to get rid of these nightmares after sharing it in this form...
