Poem by SÜREYYA AKÇAY

বাংলা English

WHAT

I  am a daughter of a feudal society
A little bit of dust to ignore
A girl to criticize
A wife to label erratic
A mother to call eccentric
What? What do you want? What!?
Who am I?
Not yielding lineage
I am what I am
I am anomalous
I am crazy
I am a poem fresh from a mountain spring.
