The unsung hero

She probably doesn’t say it

She probably doesn’t realize it often

She probably doesn’t feel the need to make an issue out of it

Maybe she’s used to it

Maybe she’s unknown to the other side

Maybe the culture doesn’t consider her

But deep in her thoughts;

She knows,

She deserves an applaud

She deserves some limelight

She deserves not to be outshown,

Just because she’s a housewife!
