Centuries have passed, the new millenium is here;
But have things changed?
Man wants to be King of his house, get his own way;
Loves to be pampered,
He wishes her to be always at his beck and call;
Clothes ready, food hot,
The woman of his heart should be queen of his home;
Enjoying love and security,
So why does he mistreat her, belittle her, batter her;
Humiliate and scorn her?
She breaks her back being a good mother, ideal wife;
But he can throw her out,
He can bring
her back conveniently, for his comfort;
She complies, she suffers,
For love's sake, she perseveres - bears his children,
An epitome of sacrifice, she must maintain culture;
Home should never break,
Divorce is taboo, she would
prefer to die in stead;
Her children are the priority,
They will understand when they are all grown up;
And respect her for the courage and will power,
To keep peace in their life!
