I am a housewife, Yes I am
Tried to express myself through poetry second time ;) It's dedicated to all fellow domestic goddesses who have sacrificed their careers, their lifestyle, their likes/dislikes for managing household affairs and working hard to keep family at peace. Here it goes supermoms......
I am a housewife, yes I am,
You think it’s easy to be one,
I invite you to step in my shoe
And see the world where I am glued;
My days and nights are no different,
You get leave to be happy and glee
But why does it become wrong when I take a leave?
You say that I stay in the house and have all the time on this earth
But did it ever bother you, if all is was just a whim and not true? Let me welcome you to my world,
I wake up before you so that I can do the chores
And get everything set to rock and roll;
You go out and see the world
But to me, my family is my world,
I sleep after you sleep
This is just to bring house at peace.
So what if I don’t earn?
I am the one because of whom you can easily move out and earn.
I don’t demand acclamations and certifications,
But just a word of appreciation.
I am a housewife Yes I am,
My family is life and that’s who I am.
I am not asking for bunches of rose and house of gold
But your gesture of love and a bit of console.
I haven’t been trained to do this job,
So I may commit mistake and things may go wrong.
Understand my plight and my sight
Coz family is the one that can make everything go right.
I am a housewife Yes I am
This is my life and this is who I am.
