Lamentations of a Daughter- (1)

Elder brother works in the fields
Younger brother is being nursed by mama
What place does a daughter like me have?

As a daughter, I am a worthless branch on the family tree
Only good for my husband's family when I marry out
And only if I bear a son

I know not to expect affection from my natal family
I know not to crave attention from mama or baba
I know to keep quiet when the men are in the room, and to stay out of the way

Yet my heart aches for love

Porcelain Heart

Though it was long ago, my heart still aches as though it just happened
That day when my heart of porcealian was shattered
It was dropped from a third story floor and fell to the ground
Breaking into a million tiny pieces

Over time the shards were gathered together
I glued them back together, and I thought I was okay
Then you came into my life, and I felt something
Something I hadn't felt in so long

It was an emotion I thought I'd lost

Even though we're just friends, I wonder
At night as I lay in my bed and the moon shines ih through my window
If we moved past being friends, I wonder
If I would be able to reciprocate any type of loving emotion you gave to me

I don't know if I could, because as I glued those shards together
I also built up a brick wall around my heart as well
So that I would never have to feel that shattering again
