Too Little, Too Late

The little happy girl in school
You called dark/fat/ugly /slow
The intelligent girl in middle school
You would make fun of for her body hair
Or carrying sanitary pads in her school bag
The high school girl whose dirty graffiti
You made in the toilet
Because she refused to kiss you
The college classmate you defamed
Because she refused to sleep with you
The girlfriend you hit and abused
Because you had intimate videos and photos
The colleague you harassed online
Because she was better at the job
The wife you exploited and ruled over
Because she could never leave the kids
The child you killed unborn
Because she was a daughter
The sister you never allowed any choice
Because she meant "honor"
The daughter-in-law you never supported
Because your son was a bully like you

They were all DEVI
or none of them is
A few plates of halwa and poori

Is too little,too late.
