I am tired behind these closed doors
Everywhere I go, I cannot find my way
I am tired and want only
To sit somewhere with my loneliness
And say to God:

God! I am tired
I do not want to act any more
Let me go somewhere else
A place with love and freedom,
A place of comfort and fortune

I am tired behind these closed doors
Alone with so many troubles
My house and home
My husband, my parents, my in-laws
Will not help me

Everyone has an opinion
One says, stop your job
Another says, you should not have married
Or you should not have children
Because you want your job and education

I am a strong woman behind these doors
I will keep my job
And raise my children
And improve my education
I will walk alone and open the door
