Her marriage was an agreement of sorts
A barter of that which cannot be replaced with that which can.
Her life for money it was.
Shocking that such practices exists even today.
Now that they have bought her,
They treat her like they own her.
Every girl dreams of a fairy tale wedding
She, 22 years old, fairly independent
Didn’t even get to have a wedding.
What was her fault?
Well, she belonged to a lower caste.
Felt like an outsider and rightly so.
They even tried breaking her bond with her parents.
She had enough of them commanding over her,
Treating her like a slave.
When it had become intolerant,
She walked right out of their lives
With smile on her face and courage in her heart.
