Updated on April 19, 2015

I sing now a song of duty

and devotion. Tis my job as

a woman to nurture and care

for everyone. My duty goes as

deep as the ocean.

A long list of obligations

I have: to cook, clean, feed, and

glean. I haven't much time

even for a book, I must lead

the household.

Even after work, my duties

do not end. I must bend

before I break to keep everyone

happy. I need a nap.

Don't I get to be pampered?

Not often. If I don't do the

chores, no one else will. No

slave am I, but appreciate help.

I have felt overwhelmed and

close to drowning.
