22. Woman

The multitasker,
graceful, grateful
and gracious.
Devoted, tolerant
and hardworking.
a teacher, a nurse,
a chef, a cleaner.
A million titles,
a million roles,
that you give
and shame her
for not being
a robot, or a goddess,
a mythical being,
with superpowers,
for being a human.
Its not a compliment,
but a trap,
a well crafted prison.

I don’t want to be
a goddess with twenty arms,
let me be a human
with two.
