I'm a living, breathing person

I'm a living, breathing person with a voice.

 

Stop interrupting at every word I say.

 

So what if I am a woman,

God has, too, given me a soul, desires, and ambitions.

 

So what if I took a step back to see you and our children flourish,

Remember, the fire inside me has not fallen yet.

 

My dreams are still alive; I still do have the voice,

A voice that was loud and heard before I married you. 

 

So what if I have opinions and put them across a few times,

Don't get mad; you know all I've done is follow your lead until now.

 

So what if I'm the one apologizing for every time we argued,

I also have a heart that waits for you to take the blame once in a while.

 

So what if you're earning and managing finances,

I've been your rock throughout.

 

So what if you're a man who demands respect,

As a woman, I deserve respect too. 

 

So please let me breathe, let me laugh, and let me express my emotions,

Let me take decisions once in a while, and you step back.

 

Isn't marriage a two-way street where two people work in harmony,

Let's take our turns and do enough to make others laugh more.

 

From what I know, like the days, and years have passed,

But some things have never changed between us. 

 

While the women around me are gushing on pills; I choose to meditate.

 

Let's love each other till eternity and keep it all together.

 

I'm a living, breathing person with a voice,

And I want to be seen and heard.
