The day I was born my parents were happy AND delighted.
It was a girl, it was me.
They protected me from all evil, for I was their daughter AND son.
I started growing up fast,
They loved me even more, for I was their present AND future.
I started going to school,
They had sleepless nights, for I was their dream AND vision.
I left home for work,
They didn’t stop worrying about me, for I was independent AND yet their naïve child.
One day they called me,
Asked me if I was ready for a new relationship, for I was a daughter AND I had to get married.
To which I replied, no matter where I go what I do, who I get married to, few things remain as they are,
Yes I am ready for the next step but remember
I will be a daughter AND then a daughter in law.
I will be a duly wedded wife AND yet a loving daughter.
I will be a loving mother AND yet will never forget my mother.
I will be a homemaker AND yet will make my own money.
I will be a immature chef AND yet will visit all flashy eateries.
I will manage my household AND yet will not skip any chances to wander wild.
I will put my family first AND yet will never compromise with my dreams.
I will sacrifice my wishes for them AND yet will be in solace.
I will have dreams for my kids AND yet will never give up on my dreams.
I will live in a closed comfy house AND yet I will never tether my imagination and thoughts.
For I am a women who disregard the concept of OR (choices/pick one) and loves to embrace the ANDs of life.
