She lived the life of a single story,
She spoke softly because mum says "you are a woman not a dog"
Beautiful laugh she hide behind silent smiles because mum says 'it adds value,
You should not be loud"
She always kept her distance from people,
Always using the hash tag #busy ,
Because mum says "less eyes from the world, better living"
She wore well tailored overalls,
Because mum says "that's how good girls dress"
She ate light,
Because her sister says "your husband to be, will like a figure 8"
She had worked at this and that for so long,
Yet the world doesn't appreciate her this much.
Now I understand why she is distant and without flesh. ........
Behind the skinny face is a dream yet unknown,
A dream that would shake the earth,
Because she has been groomed well by her mum and the want of the society. ......
Describe her life. .
