| An entry in the Crocodile Prize Poetry Awards
I am a woman,
A mother to my children.
I am an endurer,
I bear my children in pain with patience.
I am a teacher,
I mentor and encourage my children.
I am a nurse,
I care and offer health as the first priority.
I am a cook,
I provide sufficient food for every day.
I am a psychologist,
I can tell when my children are not okay.
I am an economist,
I make wise decisions for my children.
So If I can be anyone,
Why am I not making decisions
For my children in the parliament?
