 The Poetic Diary of Loi

An Independent Woman

"An Independent Woman"
Written by Loi in 2008, 2011
And revised in 2012

What shall I do when becoming an independent woman?
I budget my own money for bills
No one have to pay for me
Only I myself have to pay
Because of when the debts are here to demand me,
Then I myself have to pay
But if I do not have money for that,
Then I have to go to work
And earn the money

While I live at home with my parents,
It is nice for me to not to pay the rent
But, should I help my parents to pay the rent?
Being an independent woman is not an easy thing to do
The little kids don't have to pay anything
They are so lucky when their parents pay for them

Now I myself approach the cashier to pay anything
I pay the food,
and such more

I use my credit card is not so funny
Because of I have to be careful with how much money left I have in my bank
Every time I go to the ATM,
I must take an alert to watch out the stranger
And make sure that he not sees my privacy

If I have a job,
I'm about to go to work
But how can I get to work?
I have no license to drive
But I can take a bus to work

All I work hard as becoming an independent woman
This shows that I had an experience in a real world.
