The Plight and Pride of The Fire Born Princess

The Fire Born Princess
The Holy Godess
Pride of the Pandava
Friend of Madhava
My tales reached the masses
But the cries went unheard
Cause I was the major of the war' causes
My Birth was plan to revenge my father clan
In Swayamavar saw the mighty Partha
dressed as a saint
With whom i was excited to acquaint

The respected mother of the Pandavas asked me to shared
Mother's word are equal to god my beloved declared
I was to marry all of them
My fate had decided
Never once in it all Arjuna chided

I was hailed as the Lucky bride
Of the kuru clan I was pride
How was I supposed to know my smile won't last a mile

The doomed game was now in session
The upholder of dharma lost his possession
Drag her by hair the uncouth one declared
Humiliated in the court even my soul wasn't spared
The elders and learned kept quiet
Hundered's of eyes but none to see my plight
My husband's had their head bowed
Helplessness in their eyes cleary showed
Called out To Govind to put my misery to end
Indeed was he an true friend

We lost the palace lost our peace
But our sorrows were just about to increase

12 years spend in exile
The unjust rejoiced while
My fate was supposed to be happy feature
Wouldn't have agreed if I knew my futuure

The mighty Pandavas were now mere servant
But to my plight they were still unobservant
Soon the tesing times ended We learnt our lessons bitter n Sweet
We're prepared for Adharam to defeat

The war' begun the pilage came undone
Adharma was finally condmen
Arjun was guided by the cowherd
Abhimanyu become the victim of cowards
Millions killed on both side

Blamed was the panadav bride
The bringer of war I was called
My pride and anger were the root cause
The doomed queen I was
Lost my son and my brother
Greatest curse for a sister and mother
Blamed and shamed I could only cry
Did my loss had no price

Years from now it will be a cautionary tale
Women cause war they'll say
Does justice for us has no importance
Or Cause it agress to society's accordance

The fire in her was capable for both nourishing the weakend life and destroying the injustices. She is true definition of the divine feminine and story is an inspiration to millions to come.
