Let's help liberate today's woman

*MOTHERHOOD?*

Girl,

The offspring you are carrying in your womb, Because you are taken for granted, Because that was what completed you supposedly as Woman, Is not just because of Nature’s bestowal upon you a receptacle, It is society’s imposition too, that it may be born to carry his name!

Girl,

The wailing baby whose nappy you are coping to change, The baby of the purple crying that is his as is yours, The baby that was conceived to carry only His name, not yours, for, Carrying yours is sacrilege, Why, then why must only you be delegated The mucky task of cleaning up the hapless baby While he, among friends, socializes Well-perfumed?

Girl,

The little one that feeds at your breast Because nature so designed you to be the giver, But when it grows up and from your breast weaned away, The kitchen now a place in the house And its feed any hand can give, Any hand with care in the chest, Yet the feeding still remains your prerogative While he at the TV sits, Apathetically!

Girl,

Know this, motherhood though maybe a blessing, Motherhood though may be the paradigm of womanhood, Motherhood is, nonetheless, a glorified title that Society has conferred on woman to aspire for, So that the noxious breed of nonchalant fathers May be spared the ethically due responsibilities of Parenthood?!!

Girl, Be aware… be aware!
