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..

So It is over…

So It is over…

The day i thought it was over between the both of us.. Well, obviously it wasn’t really over.. It was just the day when saying that to him seemed like a simpler option..
I kept believing all these days that there was still a way we could get back together.. Well, you know people, that’s the worst phase, not completely stopping..  You can’t push the break and still expect the car to run.. It just won’t… I deleted his contact from my phone and just yesterday when i saved it back, i saw his display picture on whats app with his ex..
I felt a sudden rush of i don’t know what.. Lol.. All of this is very new to me.. As he would always tell me, ‘you’re just 19’.. Well that’s what i told myself when i could not figure out the dilemma.. But after a few minutes all i just did was playing some super awesome songs and dancing like i didn’t care and well i was just wondering if i was celebrating the moment, when i finally knew he’s not holding onto me or if it was the only way to stay grounded and not fall apart, only way to explode the hope and stop believing..
Sometimes in life, you just won’t be okay.. Its a constant fight between what you are and what you have to be… And we always choose to be the latter coz we are too scared to be ourselves.. But then that’s how you will grow into being the best of yourself… ‘Having to be’ will just not let u understand yourself.. So next time when you fall and you feel pain, shout and express it.. Bcoz its completely alright.. You are acting human and that’s not a crime.. If the others are human to, they’d sympathise with you instead of making fun..  Don’t be scared of those idiot who’d laugh.. Well they have nothing better to do so that’s how they make themselves happy… Yeah, but remember to get up, its okay to ask for a bit of help but the walking is an independent    activity and on the way remember to be glad, that you made a few people laugh.. So it can’t be that bad…
Be you.. Its okay to be stupid.. To fall apart, to cry, to be weak but then one day all those things just fall into place and you evolve to be a better person..
And for now, i’m planning to delete his contact forever, i’ll need time to figure out but yes i won’t run away from the fact that i’m in pain but this thing also teaches you that pain stops nothing.. You still breathe, your heart still beats for you, it’s just that your mind becomes to blinded to realise it… I believe, its this constant fight towards realising that and then all you would be feeling is ‘”GRATEFUL”

Be you.. Just breathe sometimes and tell yourself "its okay"
