A Matter of Choice (dedicated to my Maa)

poetry

For our phenomenal woman of substance… Happy Birthday, Maa.

dedicated to my Maa

An officer…(me and maa)

A lady

…and A lady…(me and maa)

A Matter of Choice (dedicated to my 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…

*maa- means mother in Hindi language. It is derived from the word“मातृ” in Sanskrit.

Note

Maa, a word that has all the peace of universe within. 
Mention of the word ‘maa’ takes away all your worries.
Same is my case.
One woman whose bare mention instils my little world with peace and tranquillity is my mother who I call ‘maa’.
She is a homemaker, a career woman who has seen wars when she served in the army and an effective doctor.
If you have anything to share on the subject about your mother please share it in the comments box.
I would definitely love to read your comments.
