Once you become a mother
You feel you need to be with the child
Always taking care of its needs
Even while at work your entire mind
Is gnawed at with the thought of your child

When you reach home the first thing
You do is run up to the child pick it up 
And shower all those feelings you wanted to share
Women basically I feel work mechanically
Rather than going to the level that 
That is her life and she should work for a living

The mother in her always begs to differ
Does not want to prove anything anywhere
The tussle between the ego and image
Is on forever as it never gets any recluse from this position
I being a singer had to be away in the evenings
Loved singing and would be singing a lullaby
Praying it reaches my little one to put her to sleep….sunkan
