In the name of labor and delivery : A perspective

My life sprouted within you
I inhaled a part of your breath
You kept me entangled and knotted-

with the umbilical cord, 
curbing my freedom

it was you again, 
who crushed me
beneath a heap of letters
which spelt “indebted”
I was forced to pawn myself
to you for a lifetime
