It was a bright sunny day
where she was all playful and gay
stayed with her grandparents    
who loved her in public
while at home brought her dismay!
"Shh.. Don’t utter a word"
for you are here only to accept what is served!
Puzzled she was her entire childhood 
grew up in the midst of elders
then there was a man who she called uncle
he came and said, “I'll narrate a story to you”
Excited she was,
couldn't see the devious acts he'd planned
for which there was no one to rescue!

He played with her and her toys
and took her in his room
and told stories so rude
scared, of those horrifying stories     
she wrapped herself close to him
where he took advantage
and touched everything that he could reach in his sight!

Not realizing what was happening 
she dared to ask what is it he's doing
"Shhh.. don't utter a word", he said
and continued playing!
Blood, she found in his hands
astonished she was
wondering, what the hell was happening!
This game became a daily routine
naive she was to complain about such wicked things!
As and when time had passed
she buried those scars deep down her heart
finally, met the love of her life
and married him in full grace and charm.

Time had come
for the two souls to become one
he touched her
and loved her
and felt her heart beats going up and down
for this was the treasured moment, when he took her into his arms!

Later that night, a strange thought crossed his mind
it was an incomplete act that had been performed!
She betrayed him, for he isn’t the first man who shared her bed, he thought
when she read his mind, loud and clear
“Uncle”, was the only syllable, she could utter
swallowing the bitter truth, he interrogated her
thinking why didn’t she made noise about it to people who were near
“Shh.. don’t utter a word”, she said was the only thing that was taught to her!

Years passed,
and they learned to accept each other
where both of them made the best duo in their tribe
Yet, inside, he departed with her, after discovering the bitter truth of her disguise!
