A girl forced to run away from home.
AM I A VAGABOND?



Yes, I’ve run away from home.
Am I a vagabond?
No, since I have not severed
Any existing bond.

No bond is there between a
Daughter and step-mother,
Who eyes the step-daughter with
Vile designs sinister?

Have I committed a sin
That I have run away,
When even my own father
Did not grant me a say?

O my Father in heaven,
I’m now at your mercy.
Not even a ray of hope,
In this world I can see.
