Now I know

Dear Mother,

I now know the joys of holding a tiny life,
I now know the love that wells when I see him.

I know what it means to be a wife
I know how to leave past, make your memories dim.

I have realized the pain of being a woman
I know how to predict things with acumen.

I know, its me, who has to lay herself before everything
I know, its me, who has to sacrifice everything

Its me who will bear all
And its me who will be forgotten like a toy-doll

What rises up chokes me I don’t know
It may be bitterness of world, or the one inside me

I pray it subsides
I pray thee

Very true, a woman always have to sacrifice herself at every point of her life. First she has to listen to her parents, then to her husband and then to her children.Between all this, she forgets to live her own life and keep living as others want her to be.
