What evil dwells in men who lock up
their women in golden cages and deny them
the freedom which nature bestows upon them
the freewill which the lord rests on them
What kind of love justifies binding up feet
of their women so they can never walk freely,
strangulate their feelings so they never have any
dreams of liberation? They suffer silently with men
of such devilish brutality, for whom their wives
are just trophies and machines to bear children
which they threaten to take away because the
law is on their side and the house is on their land.
These wives are made to bow more and everyday
and any last vestige of shredded-esteem that is left
in the gaunt hollow body and parched heart is
trampled and crushed upon. Even the wisest and
fairest of damsels fall into the charms of these
kinds of brutes who walk ten feet in front of women,
for they are men and carry the burden of their mothers
while their women have already paid for six feet deep.
Their women smile and carefully mask their purplish
dark circles with concealers and expensive mascaras,
however the blueish veins still remain visible beneath
the six layers of dark makeup, The diamond ring
of unholy matrimony used as a bait to catch the
rare fish, digs deep in fragile fingers obstructing the flow
of any life present inside, the wedding gown lay hanging
of a bride who ordered a pretty shroud for herself.
Still these wives carry neat appearances and smile even
when chained with hot iron shackles of pride and disdain.
Thoughts of mercy- killing lingers and echos all the time
but still they carry on for the sake of the newborn babies,
they bear every-year with a single wish if they are born
as girls never to mistake brutes for men as their mothers did.
For she can have an unfortunate fate like mine or yours….
