Sonnet: A Former Teacher Turned House-wife
She taught for nearly ten years in a school,
But gave it up for rearing daughters two;
Nevertheless, she kept her calm and cool;
Another fifteen years had passed off too!
She was now aging past her middle age,
And years were fleeting fast with life sans bliss;
‘She felt a bird-like kept within a cage! ’
She wondered if life better, she did miss!
Her heart now pines to go to school to teach;
Her confidence has ebbed and prevents her;
Her joining school is well within her reach;
But she prefers to stay housewife rather!
A house-wife’s role unpaid remains for life –
The best profession for mother and wife!
LOVINGLY DEDICATED TO MY BELOVED WIFE MRS. MERCY CELESTINE
