Marriage is undeniably a life changing decision of one’s life, especially for the bride. From her family, to her home, to the surname- everything changes for her. From a daughter of her own house, she becomes a daughter-in-law of another. The word ‘In-law’ remains, loudly demarcating the difference.


On the most important day of her life, a bride goes through an endless series of emotions. From nervousness, fear, excitement, to helplessness- almost every emotion hovers over her. Well, here is a piece of poem that perfectly describes the fragile emotions of the girl for not being able to go back to home with her parents.

I wish I was not born as a daughter

Glittering shining from head to toe

I just look at the wedding vows

My eyes wandered looking for you

Wanted you to hold me tight

Saw you smiling with teary eyes

Few moments ago, I belonged to you

Now I have a family, completely new

You hugged me and wiped my tears

You never looked so weak all these years

I wanted to say, let’s go home

But soon realised, I have a new home

I wished I could never leave you today

But tradition is above, as they say!

I wished so much this day could have come little late

But then how can I fight my fate

You never made me feel this, mother

But today I wish, I was not born as a daughter!
