Buried Sorrows

SAIMON SIDDIQUR RAHMAN

You come to this world 

With the sweetest smile

But they see you 

A burden to the eye

And you wish you would know

The secrets behind the snow

As you can't know

Your tears come to grow

But you go on

Putting your tolerance suit on

Oh child! When do you breathe

Oh child! When do you breathe

As you grow up

You look at the sky

Wondering how to fly

But they put you in a tie

They put you in a tie

You go to school

Looking for knowledge

But they don't let you

Because to them, 

You are nothing but a baggage 

Yet to be claimed after marriage

Oh girl! When do you dream

Oh girl! When do you dream

You get married at an age

When people live with edge 

But you are a girl 

You must live in a cage

Without feeling any rage

Oh girl! When do you live?

Oh girl! When do you live?

You conceive, you take care of your kids

You live at home and don't go out often

You cook, you wash clothes and clean the whole house

You barely do something which refreshes your mind and soul

But they will say only your husband is the one who sacrifices a lot 

And has the right to cheat on you, beat you or worse, rape you

Oh woman! Is this even your life?

Oh woman! How do you even survive?
