Anamika

Shall I be addressed?
Abandoned or Orphan!
Name me right,
Who am I?

Had I to blame:
The one who bore me,
Or the one- reason behind my birth
Answer if you can?

Egos’ were given prime importance
And I was left to fate
Not to seek your mere attendance
Let me know the greatest crime I committed?

For letting me deserted
To parch and wither as a barren land
Am I to be left as an orphan?
If you had decided to stay separate?

Who left whom?
Mama... Papa- tell me please
Who decided first?
Is it you, my love?

Yes, love left you
And so you abandoned ME:
The emblem of your love
To be called ANAMIKA!

Egos’ were given prime importance And I was left to fate Not to seek your mere attendance Let me know the greatest crime I committed? ...............i like this stanza most... emotionally charged poem...9
Great poem indeed.. Keep penning... Read some of my work. Hope you'll like it
Anamika meaning unnamed in hindi is an apt title to this emotional poem of yours. It is sad that children feel orphaned because of absence of love due to ego clashes of parents. What will you call this love? Anamika...very true. Well penned.
I can gauge the depth of desperation felt by Anamika as I too have dealt with the same topic in two of my poems- Lone Traveller and Bonsai... When you find time, have a look at them! Poignantly narrated, Queeny!
