I was there inside my mom,

covered with the red warm atmosphere

jingled along two heart rhythms

eager to know, I was 'bout to be where?

I wanted to feel lively! Free!

Excited to breathe out there.

Swirl and swing, swivel and sway

while holdin' my mom-dad's fingers!

My limbs grew, bones became strong

healthy and happy I was carried within

as my mom hoped all good, no wrong..

suddenly a question stuck in

What was the wrong she is afraid of?

Face? Voice? Shape? Colour?

What made her glow turn off?

Entered once we a green room,

where I was recognized as a girl.

The aura got filled with gust of gloom.

Unaware of the out, wanted to be loved still

how'd I know, I was a girl they'll slay.

Wanton and tragedies approached near,

high price for being a girl was to be paid.

I knew I had a star potential

would've been a world-known smile

but no one heard my nascent wishes,

I wished to live a bit more while.

And once again amongst those little fairies

never got to see life,

likely, they sent 'her' back to heaven.

That 'her' was the new-never-born me!

A brand new story was written again,

about the way they'd masquerade the miscellaneous shes.
