She opted out of the safe confines of only a homemaker’s role.
She entered the rough and tumble of the professional world.
She had to work twice as hard as her male friends,
To look half as good, according to them.
Hopefully, many years later when we meet,
She will smile and say,
I have risen very well in this world of yours.
I have risen equally well as a mother and a wife.
That’s what makes me different from you and them.
