The Outsider

What is wrong?

If I am different,

If I speak in a manner you don’t understand,

If I’m weird as you say,

If I can’t keep up to your standards.

What is wrong?

If as a woman I don’t want kids,

If I don’t want to get married,

If I’m okay being the bread winner,

If I want to travel the world alone.

Why does it amaze you?

That I have chosen a different path,

Must the society define me,

Must I be like any other woman,

Following the footsteps of my ancestors?
