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.
