Proud to be a WomanA Poem by Slender Smile
THIS ONE IS DEDICATED TO MY MOTHER. Mother: "M" is for the MILLION things she gave me, "O" means only that she's growing OLD, "T" is for the TEARS she shed to save me, "H" is for her HEART of purest gold, "E" is for her EYES, with love-light sh
Proud to be a WOMAN
I bring happiness and brightness
I bring smiles and I spread them
I take pain and I give life
I smile and I endure
I am patient and I control my anger
I am tender and yet I am strong
I give love and I spread warmth
I am not respected and I am degraded
I am hurt and yet I go on
I work day and night
To see my family happy
I sweat and I bleed
Irrespective of caste and creed
I am the symbol of love
Yet I am not loved enough
I do deserve a lot more than a pint of respect
But I expect none in return
I do not expect lavishes and luxury
I do not expect diamonds and pearls
I do not expect silks and satin
Nor do I expect publicity and praises
The only thing I expect in return
is your smile and your well-being.
You may be wondering who am I
Well...is it so hard to even guess who am I?
I am a daughter and I am a sister
I am a friend and I am a wife
I am also a mother along with the others.
But most of all I am a woman,
And I am proud to be a woman.
Hats off, to my mother and all the women out there who have been strong pillars all through these years in our lives.
To the women who work during the day and who manage their home and families after coming home from work.
To the women who toil night and day to keep their family comfortable and to fill their kids' hungry stomachs.
