This Too Shall Pass

They say behind every "Behind every successful woman there is a parent and a partner". But not each woman is blessed enough to have a partner as caring as her parents.

They say behind every “Behind every successful woman there is a parent and a partner”. But not each woman is blessed enough to have a partner as caring as her parents.

They say the times have changed and are not like then
But I am eager to know if that’s so, when?

I say only the time has changed and not my everyday struggle
As I have so much and so many to juggle.

To you, I mustn’t compete with men and step out of those doors
As you only see me worthy of sitting at home and doing all the chores.

But, I dream of flying high to see great success
Why then must I be pulled down and put through this stress?

No good are your rules, both old and new
I say it would do you good to develop a fresh point of view.

You cannot mold me and get me to do as you say
Because now, I am determined to cross every hurdle you put in my way.

I shall now achieve the freedom I seek,
For I no longer choose to be weak!
