Here’s a poem by Luz María. She dedicates it to the child-brides for their is a shame to humanity.

the full morning was sunless,
like a premonition

at this hour the rag doll over the bed
cried with me

i looked at my new face
full of deemed for

a veil was silently posed over my curls
and i wanted to run away until

maybe i tried but my feet refused to move, 
don’t even remember now!

dare not to look at the face of the man
that is taking me away

he laughs and his abuses
my senses as if a

a horse is restless outside 
the drums are beating fast

what is my price apa*?
what is my price!!!

*Note: apa is
