Here’s to the girl who dreams of becoming a mother
    2018-04-11  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

Helena Xiong

Here’s to the girl who wants to wear an apron in a world of future engineers.

She is the most dangerous enemy to modern feminism.

The women before fought for your rights!

Are you anti-feminist?

People on the other side of the world are oppressed!

She is the mightiest spirit,

As she must defend herself against both sides of the war,

Unashamed of her path that her sisters no longer approve.

Here’s to the mother,

Who wakes up to the sticky grins of her children,

Who will never be praised as a modern woman,

Whose world is a kaleidoscope of laughs and cries and spirits and possibilities and wonders.

But it will never be enough in front of a gray skyscraper.

She wrestles with frenzied children that will slither through the arms of a champion.

She works a career which includes no clock-outs, no sick leave, nor maternal leave.

Yet, they say she is weak.

Here’s to the woman with an iron soul and a tender heart.

Her name was designated to the miracle planet that we live on.

She will stand in the face of beasts that made all the knights cower,

As behind her knee stands a child.

No mention of her will ever be in the New York Times.

Here’s to Molly Weasley,

To Eliza Schuyler,

To Fantine,

To Mrs. Bennett,

Marilla Cuthbert,

Marge Simpson.

Here’s to the girl who dreams of becoming a mother.
