Balance for better
Balance for better reminds me of a seesaw!
I sit on one side, she sits on the other, I see from here, She sees from there, we see to each other.
Our kid sits on her lap, she sinks down for a while so that I lift on the other side, aren’t we on a seesaw?
Some other time, I sit tight so that she comes up and sees the light.
Balance for me is never like a horizontal bar, it’s rather like a seesaw.
I am just a bread winner, she is a champion, she works like me, she handles home, she takes care of my kid; she is the main line, I am the supporting staff, she is my better half.
Who says man runs the society! I say woman holds the family so that we imagine of something called ‘society’, men are just the helping hands. She is a wife, she is a daughter, she is a colleague, she is a boss, be it anywhere- she is there to smile and to care. I would move ahead or sit behind or do whatever I can to hold the balance-balance for better.
She sees, I see, we saw, we are at a seesaw.
