Maya
by Motherjane

Born in a hovel
Her mother cried too
The village named her Maya
Her father started anew.

Never told she was a human
Never knew otherwise
Never doubted life's lessons
Stolen from her mother's eyes.

Ignored, she grows older
Unknowing of her plight
Dreamless, life has nothing to offer
Never given her a reason to fight.

Falls prey to a young man
Gotta leave before he changes his mind
Got nothing much to carry
Everything to leave behind.

Sold into a brothel
Girlchild is just 15.
Maya
The name suits her well
This little life has never been

18, she's got the disease
Forgotten everything in between
New girl has come in from her place
Gone to welcome her into sin.

'Little sister your name won't do
Choose Maya, that was mine
In this place that is nothing new
It's all I have to leave behind
