It’s a different world…

It's a different world

It’s a different world from where l come from
In this world men open car doors
And women walk the pets
what a different world
From the one l grew up in
We both do the groceries and why not the cooking?
Could a world be this different?
I had only nursed my fantasies
With precious glimpses on the internet
But then fate thrust me in that world
By circumstances far from funny
I sacrificed all I had
to try my luck in this new world
It so happened that l was ready
to overcome my threatening insanity
And do all it takes to adapt to my new world
l am glad to say l must have come a long way
And that this different world is indeed my current world

Gratitude all the way
Gratitude all the way
