More Than A Title

Who Am I

Who am I?

I am a daughter.

Most say I look like her.

Some say I look like him.

I just want to look like me.

Have to make everyone proud.

Who am I?

I am an employee.

Bills to pay.

Always be the best.

Never fail. Don’t slow down.

I am replaceable.

Who am I?

I am a wife.

I am domesticated.

Cook. Clean. Support.

We are a unit.

Who am I?

I am a Mother.

He looks like me.

She looks like him.

Feed. Clothe. Raise.

Don’t fail them.

Who Am I?

Beyond the titles.

Beyond the responsibilities.

Sacrificed Dreams. Loss of Self.

Who Am I?
