Come let me tell you my story // You can call me a survivor of acid attack Stop there don't pity me coz I'm a fighter you know The reason of this attack is still unknown to myself "What can a simple girl coming from a middle class background do someone to get this scar of lifelong", I question this myself everyday You know while lying in hospital bed with pain so unbearable all over my body I could hear my family weeping Don't let your imagination run wild coz they were crying not because of how much pain I was in but about "Who would marry me"?and what not Should I think they were worried about my future to keep my mind at ease So my heart will not feel so cold // Finally the day came when I was discharged, they handed me a present for my recovery I guess you all might have imagined what I received -flowers, jewelry you think so It was a simple shawl to cover my face so I may not scare people away but who would tell them that the beast who attacked me is freely walking somewhere without covering their face // The pain of burning sensation is still bearable unlike the look of fear, disgust, pity, hatred in the eyes of people feels unbearable They see me like a "monster" I remind myself that I have to live in this society till my last breath So accepting that look of disgust is the only solution and so with all my courage what I do is "smile" back at their faces // Let me tell you a secret I don't dare to look in the mirror with fear I may not be able to accept myself Yet to face the society so it may not look down upon me I put up a smile If one day I become courageous to accept myself while smiling in front of mirror // Will this society change their way of seeing me? And accept my face like before Will this society stop treating me like a culprit? Will my own family accept me without conditions? Will you all be able to love me with this scar? Will you all let me live freely? I question this to the heartless people of society..
