Female dilemma

Instructed to serve and marry,

We take two steps down

To be considered accomplished.

This success of a moment

Melts with the creamy cake

Embracing us like sliding sand

On a risky tropical beach.

Role expectation

I split the cake personally
And the authority surprises
The old minded seniors.
I take charge and put my stamp
On situations of clichés and prejudice.

The time when

The time a cake with the ingredients
became a cake with two ingredients.
The time the coffee break
Moved unnoticed
And included a whole lunch break.
The time I knew my stuff
Yet my protein decided not to follow
The protocol in front of me.
The time when results were so joyful
And better than any published ones.
The same day I could not stop working
And tempting little questions
Kept popping in my head,
And I was in the lab until morning.
