I LOOK AT THE GIRL WHO WAS IN ME


I LOOK AT THE GIRL WHO WAS IN ME

TRYING TO FLY WITH CLOUDS,DANCING IN RAIN WITH GLEE
COMFORTABLE IN STUDY,SUFFOCATED IN KITCHEN
HATING ROLLING PIN,LOVING MY PEN.
I WILL BE A PROFESSOR,I ALWAYS THOUGHT,
IN A PRESTIGIOUS UNIVERSITY,WHERE MY BROTHER TAUGHT

BUT MY FOLK DIDNT LISTEN TO ME,AND GAVE ME A HUSBAND,
I NEVER HEARD OF,HUSBAND,I ONLY KNEW RUBBER BAND,OR MILITARY BAND
MY HUE AND CRY FELL ON DEAF EAR
ONE K.G. OF JEWELRY,AND HEAVY COSTUME I HAD TO WEAR.
I WAS DUMB AND DEAF THROUGHOUT THE RITUAL
IN MY IN LAW'S HOUSE I WAS CALLED A JEWEL

NOW I LOOK AT THE WOMAN WHO IS ME
MY OWN HOME,A COMPANION,A LOVING HUSBAND IS HE
HE TRIES TO KEEP ME HAPPY AND COMFORTABLE,
TO MY OWN DISMAY ,I FOUND HIM ADORABLE.
AM I HAPPY? I ASKED MYSELF,
DUSTING WITH INTEREST MY KITCHEN SHELF.
YES, I SAID,I LIKE MY NEW HORIZON
AND THEN I GOT MY FIRST BORN SON.
THEN MY DAUGHTER FOLLOWED HER BROTHER
BOTH WERE PRECIOUS GEMS FOR ME AND THEIR FATHER.

NOW I LOOK AT THE MOTHER IN ME
ALWAYS BUSY AND NEVER FREE.
TWO BUNDLES OF BOUNDLESS JOY,
A PRETTY LITTLE GIRL,AND A GENTLE NICE BOY.
IN NO TIME THEY GREW UP AND FINISHED THEIR STUDIES
THEY ARE MARRIED AND SETTLED IN DIFFERENT CITIES.
GOD BLESSED THEM WITH ANGEL FACED BABIES
MY CHILDREN ARE BUSY IN FULFILLING THEIR DUTIES.

NOW I LOOK AT THE GRANDMA WHO IS IN ME
I AM THE HAPPIEST PERSON HOW GENEROUS IS HE........GOD
I LIE DOWN ON MY BED TO HAVE A REST
BUT MY GRANDCHILDREN STARTED THEIR GYMNASTIC UPON MY CHEST
MY BODY PAIN IS GONE,
AND MY SWITCH OF ENERGY IS ON.
