Like a boss… at home

My dear friend, a highly accomplished woman are you

An excellent homemaker and a doting mother too

Here’s something I would like to suggest if I may

When compliments on culinary skills or motherhood come your way

Please take them as such, please do not try

To explain your work-life balance, to justify why

You have chosen home over an ambitious career

Or why you work part-time- there is no need, my dear

To defend your life choices, just accept the compliment

You should learn to take credit for your talent


There are women making strides at the workplace

Challenges in work-life balance they face

If you have found that balance elusive

Take pride in it, we all have different lives to live

Educated, ambitious women feel pressured to excel

In every sphere, we seem to be conditioned to dwell

On the aspects of our lives that are less illustrious

We forget how we are in our lives uber industrious..


So here’s my humble request yet again

Accept compliments, from apologizing, refrain
