Don't do this. Don't do that. 
If you don't obey, you are a spoilt brat. 
Don't ask me where am I going? My work will be ruined. 
Says someone closer to me as if I had sinned. 

A son is the only legal heir who carries the family name. 
Who started your family? You don't know? It's a shame. 
You aren't supposed to cry on Fridays. 
Is it ok for me to shed my tears on other days? 
Arranged marriages are fixed on an auspicious date. 
It's a cruel joke played by the fate. 
While simplicity, humbleness, and kindness is meant for the bride. 
Is it alright if her in-laws are full of egoism and pride? 
Why are there different sets of rules for a man and a woman? 
Sometimes, she's treated like a trash can. 
Even a man has to suffer from the atrocities of a greedy wife. 
Ah! It's such a mysterious life. 
Blaming the stars and planets for our failure is a joke. 
It's time to wake up from the bed of superstitions, folks! 
Discipline is meant for everyone. 
Stop being so rigid and have fun.

  1. Oh my goodness Aparna, you were on point with questioning the superstitions we tend to get caught up in. I often wondered where these bed of superstitions come from too girlfriend. Great poem. πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ˜ŽπŸ’–πŸ˜πŸ˜‰πŸŽ†πŸ™πŸΌ It reminds me of Stevie Wonder’s song “Superstition.” Have a wonderful, superstitious-free day my friend! πŸ₯°πŸ’–πŸ€—
