The Domesticated Truth
I am just a housewife, no big deal
And all in-between meals.In the family; all are a priority
Health is important
And loves a guarantee.
I am there to comfort;
I listen to woes
I often am a referee
I settle all the rows.
I am someone’s daughter; today a daughter in law.
I take care of both parents.
Keep his happy, mine in awe.
I have my moods but no time to show.
I even keep smiling,
When I am feeling low.
I am house proud; neatness is a must.
My days are spent cleaning,
And keeping out the dust.
I heal too; wounds of all kinds.
And many worries of young minds.
I am a hostess on call, ready to entertain.
Tea, coffee and snacks.
Even on days of a migraine.
I'm also a teacher; guiding from right and wrong.
My children learning.
Lessons to last lifelong.
My husband works hard, I keep him going.
I steer the boat.
And he does the rowing.
I manage the finances, save as much as I can.
Lest we need it someday.
For our kin and clan.
I am always everywhere; I multi task.
I can answer any question.
That you may ask.
All this for free; all my life.
And still you say;
I’m just a housewife.
Salute and Respect to all Housewives
