Strength of a woman!!

How do you smile at your wretched son

And fold the evil child of your womb in a hug

How do you sing melodies in a hurricane

And whistle praises in the thunderstorm

How do you carry the burden of a home

And believe in your gruesome husband

How do you hold back tears from falling under the gravity of  your agony

And stand against the monstrosity of this era

How do you withstand the pain of the cane

and nurse the wounds in your heart

How do you work the ground and never tire in your labour

How do you remain yourself

Seeing  your kind faces extinction

Just how do you remain you

even when camouflage is the best defence
