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?",
“did 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.
