Behind every successful man
Stands a strong woman.
One who listened more,
One who bore the weight of the world upon her shoulders.
The story we don't tell
Is how this tale goes both ways.
The greatest murderer of happiness
Your expectations are so unrealistic.
We stopped drawing lines in the sand
We were willing
To stand wherever we need to,
Wherever it made sense
At that moment in time.
Only if we changed the narrative.
Behind every strong person
Is another strong person
Who sometimes leads,
And sometimes follows.
The one who sometimes bears more than they want to.
And, sometimes get to shed it
To fertilize their relationships.
