Changing gender roles in the 21st century

As I get up this morning, 

I see my father preparing breakfast for the family,

While today, my working  mother left quite early..

I see my grandfather chopping the vegetables,
While my granny was counting her athletic medals..

My brother is a fashion designer,
While my sister hopes to be a drummer,
And I, pursue my dreams as a writer..

Today, At a restaurant,
I see a man breaking down at the bar counter,
While he was being served by a female bartender..

I ask my boyfriend,” can I pick you?”
He says, ” sure, then I’ll see you!”

This year, the world witnessed a unique possibility,
Mrs. Clinton was nominated for US presidency..

In my country,
A female boxer brings home the Olympic glory,
And her husband supports her through this journey..

“Love” unaware of the switch in gender roles,
Only recognized others for their pure hearted souls..
