Stay silent when your father hits you for voicing your opinion.

Do not question your mother when she tells you that you are to be given away like a commodity.

Don’t raise your voice against your brother for he is a boy!

Darling, you are just a woman and nothin more

You are merely a vessel to bring new life into the world.

You are just the womb that nurtures life, It is no big deal darling for it's your duty.

Just like how it is your duty to carry the weight of your family’s reputation on your fragile shoulders.
