A Proud Profession - Poem by AHO Speaks

'I am but a housewife or Mother; ' some say
To toil in this garden unfullfilled and without pay.
Others would have me believe that there is so much more
Individuality and your own thing; is really the core.

That there is more to this world and life
Than being some one's Mother or else a wife.
I say; 'no one can have more pleasure and joy
Then by the birth of a child be it a girl or boy'.

A creation to stand the test of time and look like me
Something to be held with warmth and beauty to see,
A creation that changes according to an age
That responds and reacts as tho on a stage.

Not one day is exactly like the rest
At times when they sleep can be the best.
Be proud of the profession of wife or Mother
Individual love and responsiblity; greater than any other.
