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..

A sister’s poem ( i posted this on fb last year, on my brother’s bday)

And what do i say… MY bro, my strongest pillar who supports me most of the times wen i am wrong  and believes that i must experience this world through my own eyes!!!! sometimes u can just say a few things only for me to realize i wanted to hear exactly just that… There are things i have learnt frm u that make me a better person today.. Bt all of this is sumthin every girl in my place wud have said about a bro like u…but U c sweety i gotta b a lil ‘hatke’ just so that u knw i deserve a bro u… N then again a genuine part widin me says that i’d nevr b able to prove that… So lets just try!!!

Well, since the time i learnt to remember memories,
You were always around to ask me not to freeze…

Times wen v went to school together,
And i’d yell at you, coz mst of the times we’d miss the prayer…

How i wish to get those moments back,
And live it , remembering that it was never coming back!!!

Those million times i irritated you and a thousand times u were upset wid me,
It strengthened our bond, and u had to take all the blame,
coz i was too good wid my game…  

And bro you are everythin i wud have asked for,
That person up there loves me, and u r the greatest proof i’d forever c!! 

I’d fight my greatest battles, excitedly!!!,
Remembering i’ll be gettin back home to tell u all abt my stupidity… 

And all those sisters out there have every reason to envy me….
Well, i have the coolest bro, why not bet and we shall c!!

Times wen i posted things on your wall, 
And you’d comment sacastically , n i’d delete the post afterall…

I know you don’t like PDA… But common its your bday!!! ( haila!! Yeh bhi rhyme hua  ) 

You better comment sumthin gud, orelse i won’t serve you food !!!  

Hehe.. P.s- i love you !!
