The Prehistoric Woman
As she glances around using her peripheral vision,
her mission to protect her nest, always in suspicion,
she guards the home, tends to her offspring,
awaiting her loved one, to her children lullabies she would sing.
While the man ventures out to hunt meat,
she looks after her children and keeps the home neat,
at those times facilities and luxuries were naught,
when the time of the month arrived, the pain she fought,
as blood trickled down her rough but beautiful legs,
the pain was so unbearable, to God, for mercy she begs.
But she had to stay strong and protect her children with her life,
until her loved one came back home to his wife.
She did not know if he would come back or not,
but she could not distract herself for she had to do a lot.
When unfriendly animals threaten to get past her guard,
she would defend her nest as much as she could for it was hard,
since strange animals back then were quite a strife,
especially with little ones to protect, which she would with her life.
Her loved one and herself, they had equal roles in every way,
though the society portrays them otherwise to this day.
