I am a Doll

When I was a toddler
My parents bought me toys
That I could hold and stop crying
It was easy to distract my mind
I was too young to understand
But, what, if’s and why’s
That life holds with sigh
Once they bought me a doll when I was tiny
 I still remember I named her Jennie
She was cute and cuddly my plastic buddy
Her hair was curly
She could speak and pee like other human beings
Oh! I was too innocent to understand that she had a machine in her tummy
My mother used to press that button and made her laugh and sing for me
I remember I used to clap and enjoy her laugh
As if whatever I said made her happy
I used to take her everywhere along with me
 I used to talk to her as if she was my only ally
Oh! Now when I recall those moments they sometimes sounds funny
But I found a connection with her
When I recalled my mother’s words to me
You are our doll  my baby
I realize I am born as a doll to them
A gift from God to my parents
Engaging them in some kind of game
That keeps them away from negative human race
Like the way I used to carry Jennie and make her meet my friends
I too was taken along by my parents to meet their friends
Like the way I used to bathe her, comb her hair and keep her clean and beautiful
I realized that I had been treated by my family with the same view
For them I am their Jennie
To make them happy is my duty
I hold love for them in my heart
Cause I am not plastic like Jennie
I am their part
Yes, I too had a favorite doll
Her name was Jennie
I remember when I broke her
I forgot to be dandy
She left but her memory was so uncanny
I see myself as a doll to my family
I make them laugh
I make them forget what’s, if’s, buts’ and why’s of life
When I am in pain
There heart too cries
They pray for my happiness
Cause happiness in me makes them content
I thank Jennie for making me realize that I am like her
I look at myself everyday into the mirror
I smile, because my smile makes my family charmed
I feel proud to be a doll
A doll to my family
I am their Jennie
