A Feminine Heart

I am your most loving mother.

Your ever caring sister, my brother.

 

I am your better half- your wife.

Your daughter whom you consider your life.

 

I take care of you, live for you.

Don’t I deserve a bit of respect, too?

 

I sacrifice my joys, happiness and everything.

In return, don’t I deserve even something?

 

I supress my thought for I fear.

You’ll feel agonized if you hear.

 

More than me you safeguard the gold.

Is it my marriage or I am being sold?

 

So to say, you gave me freedom.

But I here feels it seldom.

 

My heart aches and it pains.

I weep deep inside, like it rains.

 

O ye Men! I continue to suffer.

How can you still act so tougher?
