When I am a daughter,
I like to do each work
patiently, perfectly and dedicately.
Still makes me fight for my rights.

When I am a sister,
I compete with my siblings,
quarrel with them for my share in everything.
Thus proves my identity.

When I am an employee,
I still work hard and with dedication
which makes me workaholic.
Still gives me financial independence.

When I am a wife,
I learn to do multitasking
as the day seems shorter than the work I have.
Thus trains me to work fast and perfect.

When I am a daughter-in-law,
I compromise myself in my efforts
for maintaining good relations
which makes me more responsible.

When I am a mother,
I stop thinking of myself
as I see every work of mine be fruitful to my family.
Thus I create dependency and bonding.

Each phase of my life
brings the best out of me.
Still I sometimes miss me somewhere inside myself.
Thus fetching my lost identity.
