The unwed mother
The love of my life promised me
Nothing could bring us apart.
Believing in him and my love
I gave away everything along my heart!
What we had was physical for him
But for me it was serene
But my belief shattered
As he did what I couldn’t even dream!
He left me and symbol of our love,
And carried on with his life.
But I couldn’t punish the baby for him
So I decided to be a mother before a wife.
In no way, does this seems like a problem to me
For me everything is nice.
But the society seems to have a problem with this
They don’t think like wise!
For them I am nothing more than a slut
And my baby is just a mistake.
If we are happy the way things are
Then what’s there problem for Christ’s sake?
That guy did what he had to do
Yet for him no questions and no blames
Then why to prove my purity
I shall testify through flames?
Just answer one question and then decide
Which among the two is better?
Killing someone who is not at fault
Or being an Unwed mother?
For those who don’t get it still
I have nothing more to say!
This slut and her mistake don’t need your views
They are happy and complete in their way!
