One of my best friends wrote me this :)
By Amany Zakaria
I met a friend, not long time ago
A very close friend, with a mind that glows
She's single, well-educated I know
But was suprised to learn, she works no more!!!
Upon asking her the reason for so
Is it recession or no place to go
She surprised me with a theory...
I'd love to share with you all
She asked simplily "why the OH!
If I am not bored,
Nor am I financially low
In fact, there's a lot to do"
"I spend my time reading, like i never read before
I can develop mentally, that's for sure
I have time for my family and friends so close
Why is it a must i go to work?"
"Why link education to having to work?
Why staying home is such a dark thought?
Why, when I get married, it's better to stay home?
Why do I "just have to go with the flow?""
My family talks to me no more
My friends pray I leave the "store"
They believe i do nothing but clean the floor
Why not accept me the way I adore?"
Dear friend, forgive me for doing so
Not accepting nor supporting you
But, rather, pushing and arguing you
And why..........just because "everybody sees so"
*Special dedication to shimaa gamal. I'm still waiting for your theory in colliqual arabic, as i heard it from you :)
