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!
