So much emphasis is placed today on the role of the wife
She is to be pure, pristine, just, hardworking
She is to imbibe all who surround her with faith
She needs to be able to know everything without ever asking
She is to be the woman behind her husband
The one who would make of him a gem
To be a wife, is surely a complicated state
Acted out badly, one can even be a contraband!
But what of the duties of a man,
Is he as important as the woman
To be a husband requires one only to work and bring money
To care not whether the home is, without him, in harmony
Husbands are in heaven whose wives scold not
Husbands have rights, rights to use words of spite
Rights to beat, rights to abuse
Rights even to cheat, to hurt and bruise
When the woman speaks out, or scolds such a man
She becomes something seen by some as a legend
Seen by others as un-womanly
Whatever, she knows how to protect herself through her duty
What of those men whose wives scold not
Should they be brought back to the pot
To be cooked and simmered
To be brought to the right path
Feminists, equal rights, equal opportunities
Women's places no more being in the kitchen
Husbands, change your mentalities
We, women, we are frail and easily broken!
An exit sign casts its red glow on steel doors that line the hallway,
Their numbers barely visible in its light, the only light.
From 302 comes the sound of conflict,
The loud voice of Anger and the muffled sobs of Despair.
A knock below the numbers mutes Anger and Despair,
Allowing the cries of Innocence to be heard.
Beyond the door, what remains of love watches from frames on a wall,
At its own inescapable demise.
And from a corner of the room, Innocence cries through guiltless eyes,
That are filled with fear and confusion.
