a haunting.

This story happened in 2003, it’s true. It happened in my state.  

There is this Muslim girl. She was a high school student. 

Long story short, she made a mistake and she got pregnant with her boyfriend’s child. Of course, her parents and her grandmother were furious. 

Her boyfriend was willing to take responsibility. He went to the girl’s house to meet her parents but they pushed him away. He was beaten by the girl’s neighbors and he went into a coma.
Her parents told her that her boyfriend’s dead. 

She was devastated. She had no one to go to. Her parents and grandmother rejected her.
She thought getting rid of the baby would solve all the problems. So she swallowed poison. Pesticide to be exact.

She went to the clinic but it was too late. She died on her way to the hospital.
Her family was called to claim her body. They didn’t give her a decent funeral. Instead, they dug a hole, and pushed her and buried her in it. 

The girl wasn’t gone. She didn’t rest in peace. She went wandering, haunting people, asking them to help manage her body. 

She went around, carrying a baby in her hands and offering people to look at her baby. But when people looked at it, it wasn’t a baby. But instead, it was a tombstone.

The first person she went to was her grandma. That resulted to nothing.

She went wandering further and further, from her village to a few other villages’ kilometers away. Reports of people seeing her increased. 

At last, after two months, she went to this man. A religious scholar. He investigated and managed to find the girls’ family.

He went to meet them, and he took care of the girl. Her ‘grave’ was dug and she was given a proper funeral. Imagine a 2 month corpse, being dug out from the ground. 

After it was settled, there were no more sightings of her.
This story became a legend.

Invisible

She’s all alone by herself
in the school library
next to the old shelf
dreaming of being happy
-
as time passes by
she’s still unnoticeable
and she wonders why
why is she so invisible
-
she lets her hair down to cover her face
and she wears clothes so dull
nobody realizes she’s got lots of grace
nobody realizes she’s beautiful
-
she’d cry herself to sleep every night
the pain so unbearable
waiting for someone to notice her
but for now, she’ll remain invisible

My Prince

Someday he’ll come, on a chestnut horse
just when i’m about to give up, to give in
He’ll come, my saviour
And i’ll have a place to lean

He’ll make me happy
he’ll say i’m the queen of his world
he’ll promise he’ll love me
he’ll say everything, without speaking a word

He’ll hold me tight and won’t let me go
until my last breath, he’ll protect me
when I cry, he’ll wipe my tears and say it’s alright
he’ll take care of me, through every night

someday he’ll come, on a chestnut horse
on a cold lonely night
our eyes will meet, so powerful a force
it’ll be love at first sight

he’ll sweep me of my feet
he’ll kneel and ask for my hand
he’ll say i make him complete
and i’ll say yes to the man

With his charm he’ll win my heart
with his heart he’ll win my soul
i know he will play his part
in my play of life, he’s the leading role

he would send me roses
daffodils and daisies too
we’ll ride horses
and get lost, just us two

he’ll cheer me up when i’m sad
comfort me when i’m scared
calm me down when i’m mad
and do things no one ever dared

he’ll catch me when I fall
and sacrifice everything
help me through it all
no matter how threatening.
