woman's place in society.

Somebody's daughter
Somebody's wife
Somebody's mother
For all of your life.

They all turn to you
When things go wrong
For they all know
That you are strong.

You hold their hands
You calm their fears
You stand beside them
You dry their tears.

Your role was defined
A long time ago
And you reassure them
That you'll never go.

You feel their need
You can see it in their eyes
They depend on you
They think you are wise.

But who do you turn to
When you feel low?
You can never tell them
They must never know.

Somebody's daughter
Somebody's wife
Somebody's mother
For all of your life.

How true, although, as a guy, hopefully I won't find out what it's like firsthand! Well-said!

I don't think men have it easy either.
But,as a woman,I must write from a female point of view.
Glad you liked it.

To somebody's sister or brother and best friend for just as long. That would be my guess on who you may or might be able to turn to!

I've felt this way too at times... not sure I want to go down that route... is it worth it? Lots of truth in it. I have an AMAZING network of women around me and we take care of each other :-) Be blessed $

Very true. Women have been put in a tough situation since near the beginning of time. It is unfair to them, but things are slowly changing now at least.
