A Girl In too Many Roles

3-to-1

She must cook!

She must Clean!

She must be pretty but not too pretty!

She must be in shape but not show her body.

She must be young but not too young.

She must be smart but not too smart.

She must indure but not show struggle.

She must trust me even when I’m wrong.

She must wait for me until I’m ready.

Yet what will be her prize for this, pain.

Where did they go?

Once upon a time me and my family went on a trip. They said it would be fun and that we will have a new home now. I was so excited at the time, but then they said me and my brother would need to stay and we had to go.

“Why?” I asked they said this was a school for children and that they will come back later. I ask “How much later,” they did not answer. Mommy said I will make a lot of friends here and that we will have a great time.

I couldn’t grasp why they couldn’t stay, but I guess this is what boarding school is like. All the other grown up parent were saying good bye too. So this must be normal that’s what I thought, but the way there looked into me and my brothers eyes made me wonder.

My brother felt it as well he said, ” Why do you look so sad momma.” She didn’t answer daddy said ” Because we love our little babies” with a smile.

For one last time we held hands and walked in the school garden.
