An appeal to my father

a poem by Sakthi Ravichandran

It is my appeal to you my dad
Not to kill me in my mother’s ovary
It is my temple of my soul and
You are the God of my life, you know
I will not add your burden my dad
Please let me live in this earth as child
My hands will become strong to work and
I will reduce your sufferings later
As a daughter, I will do as a son to you
Let me allow me to live in this world
I will change your fate and destiny too
What’s wrong with me? To die before my birth
Please ask your noble heart before this sin
I will give more noble citizens
