She was afraid of being left all alone at her disposal
There were tears of defeat within her eyes
Shackled through the culture rhythm that was enforced upon her through that proposal
She had to smile as she had no choice
For twenty-five years she endured it all
But once her daughters grew older, she gave her answer with poise
Everyone looked at her with disgust
“Did you hear?” were the murmurs around her
She had broken the patriarchal bound as it was a must
For her daughters to learn that they did not live to please anyone
As people will only talk today and tomorrow
But none will care and they will have no one.
“So stand today for yourself!” She said to them
“I was weak in the past but now I’ve got us
This is our gateway and this moment is our gem.”
