She carries the burden of the universe

Her slender frame bents

Her weak shoulders fracture

Her back buckles

We do all to lessen her burden, except

Getting off her back

Myth says, tortoises bear the burden of the universe

She is not a myth

She is a mother, a daughter, a wife, a sister

She is a woman

She is the progenitor of man
