cower

Written by: IRIS GONZAL

When you make me cower I am
Less than a negative
Less than nothing
Less than wretched

When I false praise you I feel
Like a coward
Like a groveling animal
Like you're dutiful pet

When I finish cooking and cleaning for you
I'm tired but I smile
I'm hungry but I fein
I let you take me and I cry

It's my job 
I am your wife
How I wish for the strenghth
to take you life.
