I DON’T WANT TO BE
I don’t want to be a wife.
A housewife, working wife, whatsoever wife!
It’s not that I simply don’t want to lose my life.
That is also a point, but that’s beside the point.
It’s simply because being a wife is as complicated as coding,
More complex than hacking and quite as hectic as military training.
It is not simply something you do just because you want to.
It is not a matter of faith that you will blindly believe you can, and then it is done.
I am not saying I don’t want to be submissive; welcoming your guests and kneeling
Before that was also a point, but that’s so beside the point.
See, the bottom line is; I don’t want to be a mother!
It’s not that I don’t want to lose sleep at night,
Changing diapers and listening to the wailing of an infant…
Well, that is also a point, but that’s so beside the point.
Have you ever tried balancing a chemical equation without the guidance of a teacher?
Or have you solved the bulldozer method and its entire origin without the aid of an example?
It’s not that I am afraid of being a lousy mother,
But when it comes to trying, I would rather not bother.
It’s not that I am afraid of being plunged into the unknown –
But, well, who isn’t?
“You will change your mind, You’re just immature”, they say.
Yes, I am immature, but I still don’t want to be a mother, a wife, for that matter.
After all, how will I learn to be one without a good example from one?
