Stop interrupting at every word I say.
So what if I am a woman,
God has, too, given me a soul, desires, and ambitions.
So what if I took a step back to see you and our children flourish,
Remember, the fire inside me has not fallen yet.
My dreams are still alive; I still do have the voice,
A voice that was loud and heard before I married you.
So what if I have opinions and put them across a few times,
Don't get mad; you know all I've done is follow your lead until now.
So what if I'm the one apologizing for every time we argued,
I also have a heart that waits for you to take the blame once in a while.
So what if you're earning and managing finances,
I've been your rock throughout.
So what if you're a man who demands respect,
As a woman, I deserve respect too.
So please let me breathe, let me laugh, and let me express my emotions,
Let me take decisions once in a while, and you step back.
Isn't marriage a two-way street where two people work in harmony,
Let's take our turns and do enough to make others laugh more.
From what I know, like the days, and years have passed,
But some things have never changed between us.
While the women around me are gushing on pills; I choose to meditate.
Let's love each other till eternity and keep it all together.
I'm a living, breathing person with a voice,
And I want to be seen and heard.
