She wants more from this life

What about it is so surprising

That she can see eyebrows rising

When she expresses the desire for more

Be it food, freedom, ambition, they are keeping score

In no sphere should she expect to exceed

Whatever the men in her life have, her needs

Can never be allowed to surpass theirs’

To blatantly express her desires, how does she dare

Caring for her family should bring her happiness

She is selfish to seek individual success..


Patriarchy has roots so deep

That women still have to climb hills steep

When they try to place themselves first

Because fragile egos could burst
