A Matter of Choice (dedicated to my mother)

For our phenomenal woman of substance… Happy Birthday Maa.

…and A lady…(me and maa)

To marry, or to be single,
Motherhood or independence,
Domesticity and housework, or,
A specialist and professionalism
Being a woman of substance,
You are a Complete Woman.
Woman…, for you
It’s all just a matter of Choice…

Breastfeeding, cooking, playing, banking,
Doing grocery shopping, paying bills,
Watching TV, or,
Trying to attend a phone call,
A one man army,
You are a Complete Woman.
Woman…, for you
It’s all just a matter of Choice…

Living by societal standards,
Fulfilling expectations of family,
Balancing between the good and bad,
Striving for a perfect balance,
On being a daughter and daughter-in law,
You are a Complete Woman.
Woman…, for you
It’s all just a matter of Choice…

Don’t let any Man, or
Societies fool you,
Set labels and standards for you,
Make your personal choices.
Be an odd variation; be original,
You are a Complete Woman.
Woman…, for you
It’s all just a matter of Choice…
