“I knew who I was as a girl but I had to find who I was as a woman.”
-Delta Goodrem-


Sad Dad walked his girl
She had tears of glee and glum
Her hand changed her life

The charming white dress 
showed the peace in the girl's mind
Her hair was no mess

Guy was excited
Which made the Dad so frightened
But he had no choice

Dad's glad for his girl
And her brand new life ahead
He wore a slight smile

The Guy's big sisters
Had planned a prank to trick them
But could not do so

The learned tester came
Looked at the Girl and the Guy
And chanted his words

Then, came out a juice,
then hugs, talks and rushes 
Soon they headed out

A fancy car arrived
Went in the girl and the guy
life is shining new


The author's comments:

My name is Afra. I was born on the 29th of December. I am a Sri Lankan currently residing in Kandy, Sri Lanka. I dedicate my poem to My Dad, Mom, Ameer Uncle, Paji Aunty, my Granny Janufa Reyal, Khaniz Umma, Soodha Umma, Awrah, Amdhi, Aara, Sathvika and My late Grandpa Rahmath Appa. If they weren't there, my poem won't be here. And I also dedicate this to all the readers of Teen Ink. 

I chose to write about marriage because due to Covid, we are not able to attend marriage ceremonies. In a marriage, all relatives get together and have an interaction which never happens everyday. I really miss those good old days before Covid and I do wish that this pandemic would end soon. Stay safe, dear readers.

This is a beautiful poem. One of my sisters got married and I guess this was everyone's feeling at that time.

@WolfGurl Thank you so much for your wish is a rare one as I don't get much wishes from friends...
And Thank you for your appreciation too because It brightened my day...All you have to do is to be the person who you want the emotion of and then, feel the situation and just write it down and you know, edit, cut and stuff...
You too write well and I even read the book which you write the review about...
Thanks again...★★★

Oh my gosh! Afra I just saw this sorry I missed your birthday! But happy belated birthday!!! I hope this coming new year will be full of promises for you and your family ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Also I just re-read this poem and I have more feedback:

I love how you so creatively showed what everyone's emotions were and what they were thinking! Also I like how this poem reflects promise and hope. A lot of us need that these days for sure!

Where did you learn to write like that?

@WolfGurl You know, I too am like you at times...I just get carried away and end up telling my whole life story to someone when we just begin a conversation...In fact, I can say that I'm open...Maybe, that's why I like people who are open and tell their 'whole life story' because it's so, um...So me!!!
And our date of birth, Oh my God!!! I need your wish on my birthday for sure...I shall wish you in your poem on your birthday too...
Me too, I'm new and I'm beginning to love it here, getting to know you guys and reading your splendiferous poems...
Glad to know you...Thank you for your comment...♡♡♡
