That Girl

  • By Divya Mishra (MA Education, 2013-15) first published in Karvaan 2017

To the friendships I never had,
to the friends who never stayed,
To the people who never met me,
To the ones whose will was free.
I don’t have a problem if I was lesser known,
Cause all of them don’t have my friendship sworn.
You can think of me as a slut or cunt,
But you cannot bring me down however hard you hunt.

(to the girl who drummed her way from red light area in Mumbai to music institute in US)
