A Poem by a Dalit Child

I am nobody

Worthless my life is

To Untouchables I was born.

A Dalit child my fate sealed.

 

I was born in the slums

Rights? We have none

To upper-caste our lives we owe

Slaves to serve all their wish.

 

Poverty and hunger

Is all I ever knew

If ther is hope

Tell me how?

 

What is my future

Do I have any?

It all looks so dark

And I wish I was not born
