MY DAUGHTER

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As news of your arrival

In mother’s womb was broken;

We didn’t know who you’re

Daughter or a son.

Despite unsolicited suggestions

I stood my ground;

And what is your gender

Was not found.

Till the delivery day, that is,

And papa “hers” I became,

And not papa “his”!

To be honest with myself

And also with you;

There was a shock,

For a moment or two.

Today, when you turn

Towards your 13th spring;

I have immense satisfaction

(As if I am the king 😉

At the momentous decision

I took years ago;

Your sex in mother’s womb,

In refusing to know.
