It is often I encounter
black and white
Tradition vs. independence
as a daughter.

responsibility vs. equality
as a sister.

Love vs. family honour
as a young lady.

Home vs. work
as a wife.

Life vs. so many things
as a mom.

I am a modern woman
all the opposites dare me
all the paradoxes scare me

and the toughest choice remains
to make my baby laugh
go out and have a life.

The fire in my soul
the freeze of the norms
its a battle still on...
