She plays the role of a daughter, wife, and mother,
She could have been educated more,
But she was told she had other household chores.
She could have shaped up her career throughout her life,
But she was expected to learn how family and work could be prioritized.
She could have raised her voice against atrocities,
She could have enjoyed her status as a maiden for a while,
But she was expected to marry a man and be highly versatile.
She could have been financially independent,
These notions still prevail,
In this women empowerment era.
She would no longer complain,
She would no longer shed tears and always be ahead,
