Daughter! Blessed.

It was Daughter's Day 
a few days ago.

Social media rejoiced

in posts of celebrations.

I feel blessed

to be a daughter everyday.

Yesterday, but
A daughter succumbed to fate
;

Reiterating stagnant mindset,
justified time and again.

"You're but a blessed daughter,

in someone's unheard eulogy."

*The news story, another in
numbers of crime against women
that have never found answers
as to "why again?",
what was her fault?",
โ€œdid anyone in her village
remember her for being a
supportive and hard working
daughter?, and "what did she
do to deserve this birth?".
May her soul
transition in peace.
