JENIE FRANKSAY (07 august 1996 / samastipur)
as a child i used to think,
what would i be
when i grow up?
i asked daddy.
he would smile & gently pat my head.
then pulling his hand i would plead
'answer me daddy. answer me.'
looking at me lovingly,
'be what you wish,
you're free. i leave you unleash.
no boundaries for you dear.
be what you want.
you choose your favourite future.'
