I am more than what you see

Definitely more than what you seek

I am more than just a mother

Or the caretaker of my OCD stricken brother

I am more than a caring daughter

And more than a contributing partner

I am more than a puppet who you wish would fit in the mould

And I shall fight to not be Barbied, till I am grey and old!

If you say that I am an equal, then why is my career a hobby to you?

Do you even care what I do for a living, or it is a floppy to you, redundant

Would you celebrate me if I said I am a hard-working employee?

Or is it less than gaining the virtue of round roties?

Would you hold your head up high, if I said that I am a kind and driven boss

Or is it useless to you since I don’t change all my baby’ s nappies?

Ma, don’t put me back into what you have been put through

We can break the glass ceilings – for that I am with you.
