PC: Painted by  Monika Tomar Saroch.

I was never given the opportunity
 to say Yes or No.
I simply accepted life as it was
I had no fear because I was
 so innocent and pure
My beauty enchanted everyone
around me.
I had no idea I had a uterus
but I became a mother
at a young age because
I wasn't aware of the
good and bad touch.
Today, I stand alone in this society
with my child, bearing a
permanent scar within me.
Even the pleasant touch no longer
brings me joy.
My heart is pounding as I recall the terrifying night.
Because I was never given the opportunity to say Yes or No
