"Lessons learnt by a girl"
Don’t shed tears for the unknown
For they only hold vivid imaginations.
Don’t reminisce in the past,
It only reflects the time gone by.
Let’s learn to live in the present,
A reality we ought to embrace.
The sun offers its warmth,
The trees its’ cool breeze,
The rich offer their wealth
While only the poor offer their heart and soul.
Poor in riches, rich in love,
I give you my love and affection
For the hatred and neglect you have to offer.
Translated by Shibu Shrestha
