There is a trial against me,
I have been punished and cannot be appealed
I guess it is severe than “Life imprisonment”
Or a “Capital Punishment”, sins would be pardoned in heaven
A crime neither I am aware of nor shared
Eternal mental torture I have to bear
The verdict passed with my birth

    My Dear Linda, Thanks. Initially I wanted to title it as "illegitimacy" Then again I thought it would be too direct. True the life is gifted in many many ways and hides ugly scars.
